Votes on state court judgeships

Yesterday, the House agreed on its choices for circuit court judgeships, which included Sherrie Capotosto over Judge Andrews for Hampton and Tim Battle for Alexandria. The Senate measure, as amended, did nothing on these two positions. According to this report ("Andrews decision left to governor," 3/11/04) in the Daily Press, the Senate's side-stepping leaves it to the Governor to decide those positions.

The Bristol paper reports here on the selection of Bristol's Commonwealth's Attorney Larry Kirksey for the 28th Circuit.

The Roanoke paper has this report on the selection of Radford's Commonwealth's Attorney to a general district court judgeship, to fill the seat of retired Judge Danny Bird from Wytheville.
