The House of Delegates has named some juvenile and domestic relations district court judges, including:
The Honorable Florence A. Powell, of Washington, as a judge of the Twenty-eighth Judicial District for a term of six years commencing February 1, 2008.
The Honorable John M. Farmer, of Dickenson, as a judge of the Twenty-ninth Judicial District for a term of six years commencing April 1, 2008.
The Honorable Jeffrey S. Hamilton, of Scott, as a judge of the Thirtieth Judicial District for a term of six years commencing February 1, 2008.
Judge Hamilton, I suppose, fills the seat left vacant by former Judge Shull. Judge Powell was a circuit court pick, confirmed for the first time by the legislature. Judge Farmer was left out of the Senate bill.
The bills adding judgeships to the 30th Circuit and the 28th and 29th districts are continuing, although Senator Wampler on the Finance Committee voted against both, as shown here and here.
