The next Chief Justice
I read this morning that Justice Lemons has been elected to succeed Chief Justice Kinser as the next Chief Justice of the Virginia Supreme Court. He would be the first former member of the Virginia Court of Appeals to serve as the Chief Justice - and possibly the first former judge of the Circuit Court for the City of Richmond to serve as the Chief Justice (he would know). I have heard him speak many times, including mostly recently at a seminar in Charlottesville this summer, and he is a very articulate spokesman for the Rule of Law and the legal system in Virginia.
