JUDGE MYERS IS RETIRING

October 18, 2011 § 1 Comment

COA Judge William Myers has submitted his resignation, effective December 31, 2011.

The replacement appointee will be from the district comprising Forrest, George, Greene, Hancock, Harrison, Jackson, Lamar, Pearl River, Perry, Stone and parts of Wayne counties.

Wouldn’t it be grand if the appointee were a chancellor? Of course, to be appointed, one has to apply for the job.

Here’s Governor Barbour’s press release:

GOV. BARBOUR’S JUDICIAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE SEARCHING TO FILL APPELLATE COURT SEAT
