FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Governor Fletcher has been sent three names of possible successors to the late Kentucky Supreme Court Justice William McAnulty.
Chief Justice Joseph Lambert led a seven-member nominating commission that selected Court of Appeals Judge Lisabeth Hughes Abramson and Jefferson County Circuit Judges Geoffrey Morris and James Shake.
Fletcher must select one of the three to replace McAnulty, who resigned from the Supreme Court on August eighth and died of cancer on August 23rd.
The appointee will serve through the November 2008 election, when voters will elect a justice.
