New judges -- UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, Jun 25, 2007 at 8:55 AM

Today may be the day that Gov. Mike Beebe announces a replacement for David Stewart, as a district court judge in Little Rock. Think Searcy.

UPDATE: Told ya. Alice Lightle, a Searcy native and daughter of the late head of the law firm in which the governor once worked, was tapped for the environmental court opening in Little Rock. She was a major campaign contributor to the governor, through several family companies. A former member of the attorney general's staff, she lives in Little Rock and is director of the Arkansas Public Policy Panel.

Beebe also announced the appointment of Camille Williams Bennett of Lonoke to fill  the 23rd Judicial District Court seat vacated when Barbara Elmore accepted a Beebe appointment to a new circuit judgeship in the district. Bennett has worked in the attorney general's office since 2002.

The two judges serve through the end of 2008.

Also, Beebe announced  that Anne Laidlaw of North Little Rock, currently the interim director for the Arkansas Building Authority, will become director of the agency.
