Kentucky Appeals Court Judges, Shea Nickell, Joy Moore and Janet Stumbo were guest of the Hopkinsville-Christian County Bar Association today for a luncheon. I attended as a guest the guest of John Lindsey Adams. Sitting with Lindsey, John Soyars and our Commonwealth Attorney Lynn Pryor, we enjoyed eating a few slices of pizza while we waited on the Judges to arrive. Each Judge spoke briefly and the Court.
Shea Nickell who joined the Court in 2006 represents the area on the Court. Nickell defeated former Hopkinsville attorney Logan Askew to win the seat. Askew now serves as the Lexington City Attorney. Joy Moore is the wife of Boone County Judge Executive Gary Moore. The group was in town to hear appeals. The Judges commented that they plan to continue hearing cases out in the State so that the people of Kentucky may have a better opportunity to see and understand what the Court does.
