Associate Justice Donald Corbin of the Arkansas Supreme Court had part of his lung removed during cancer surgery Thursday. A statement from the court:

Arkansas Supreme Court Associate Justice Donald Corbin, 72, is recovering in the cardiovascular intensive care unit at Baptist Hospital in Little Rock after undergoing surgery Thursday to remove the upper left lobe of his lung. He is expected to remain in CVICU for a few days. Dr. Derlis Martino and Dr. Hugh Burnett successfully removed the left upper lobe of Justice Corbin's lung, where a cancerous tumor had been found in June. Justice Corbin received chemotherapy weekly to shrink the tumor until his emergency bypass surgery on July 20. Justice Corbin plans to return to the office as soon as possible.

Justice Corbin and his wife, Dorcy Corbin, live in Little Rock and have five adult children. He was elected to the Supreme Court in 1990, and was most recently re-elected in 2006 for another eight-year term.. 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. Prior to this position, he served five terms as a state representative from 1971-1980. Corbin also practiced law in DeQueen, Lewisville, and Stamps, Arkansas.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
