Supreme Court watch

Posted By on Fri, Nov 20, 2009 at 12:02 PM

State Supreme Court Justice Annabelle Clinton Imber has announced her retirement, creating a position for Gov. Mike Beebe to fill by appointment for a year until an election in 2010.

How's this for an intriguing candidate for that appointment -- Bill Bowen, retired lawyer, banker, gubernatorial chief of staff, UALR law school namesake? He's a spry 86.

The governor's office isn't saying, of course. But his name is going around.
