Portrait of Ky. chief justice to hang in courtroom

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A portrait of Kentucky Chief Justice John Minton will hang in the Warren County Circuit courtroom where he presided for 11 years.

The Bowling Green-Warren County Bar Association unveiled the portrait during Law Day 2012 celebrations Wednesday at the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center in Bowling Green.

The Daily News reported (http://bit.ly/IWoOCw ) that Minton's portrait will hang in Circuit Courtroom A in the Warren County Justice Center alongside those of several other circuit judges who have served over the years in Warren County.

Minton served as a circuit judge from 1992 to 2003 before being named a Kentucky Court of Appeals judge.

In 2006, Minton was appointed by then-Kentucky Gov. Ernie Fletcher to the Kentucky Supreme Court and was sworn in as chief justice in 2008.
