I had heard that Governor Kaine was going to appoint Circuit Court Judge Leroy Millette to the Virginia Court of Appeals, and yesterday he did.
The press release from the Governor is here.
The Baltimore Sun ran this profile on Judge Millette at the time of the D.C. sniper trial in Prince William County, over which he presided. It says among other things that he is a William & Mary law graduate, evidently from the same class of '74 as Judge Glen Conrad of the W.D. Va.
