Investiture of Judge McClanahan
The Court of Appeals sat in Abingdon this afternoon, for the investiture of Judge Elizabeth McClanahan. Speakers included Attorney General Kilgore and attorneys Brad Stallard and Jill Harrison from Penn Stuart, past and former members of the SCHEV, Delegate Kilgore and Senator Wampler, the current VBA president Frank Thomas, former Secretary of the Commonwealth Betsy Beamer, and the oath was administered by Justice Kinser. It is a good thing for a boatload of Richmonders to come to SWVA once in a while, although I understand at least three Supreme Court justices will be here in July to hear petitions.
