Minton Sworn In As Chief Justice

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - John D. Minton Jr. has been sworn in as
chief justice of the Kentucky Supreme Court.

The Bowling Green resident was elected to the Surpeme Court less
than two years ago. He was chosen by fellow justices last month to
replace Joseph Lambert as chief justice. Lambert retired after 22
years on the Supreme Court.

Minton had served on the Kentucky Court of Appeals for three
years beginning in 2003. He was circuit court judge in Warren
County from 1992 to 2003.

Gov. Steve Beshear is also an attorney and says Minton's
reputation for fairness and his intellect brings dignity to the
court system.
