The news release:

Arkansas Supreme Court Associate Justice Donald Corbin suffered a heart attack on July 18 and underwent emergency bypass surgery on July 20. While there were some complications, Justice Corbin is now out of intensive care, and will remain in the hospital for a couple of days before returning home. Corbin’s cardiovascular doctors are optimistic about his recovery.

Justice Corbin will return to work at the end of the Supreme Court’s summer recess. No further information will be made available at this time by this office, the Supreme Court, or the Corbin family.

Justice Corbin was a judge on the Arkansas Court of Appeals from 1981-1990. The last three of those years he was Chief Judge of that body from 1987-1990.
