TGIF open line: Plus, a historic session and a new Supreme Court clerk

Posted By on Fri, Jun 27, 2014 at 4:18 PM


The week's done. Hooray. At top is a photo from the Arkansas House, which will hold its part of next week's three-day special session in the Old State House because of repair work at the Capitol. Preparations were underway today. Also:

* MAKING IT OFFICIAL: The Arkansas Supreme Court today issued the official news releae on the selection of Stacey Pectol to be the new Supreme Court clerk to succeed retiring Les Steen as top administrator of the clerk's office. I wrote about this selection yesterday, along with an internal Supreme Court division on the issue. As a document I received today shows, another person had been picked for the job and announced by Chief Justice Jim Hannah, but adamant oppositon from the three female justices to that pick led to her deciding not to take the job. Nine others, not including Pectol, had applied. She's been a law clerk to Justice Donald Corbin since 2008 and had clerked for him previously, with a human resources job in the private sector in between.
