Ivey Appoints Mendheim
We have just learned that Governor Kay Ivey has appointed Justice Brad Mendheim to the seat on the Alabama Supreme Court being vacated when Justice Tom Parker takes over as Chief Justice in January. Governor Ivey had previously appointed Mendheim to the seat vacated by former Justice Glenn Murdock upon his early retirement.
This is great news for Alabama employers. Justice Mendheim has an impeccable record of service at the Circuit and Appellate levels. He is a true conservative and totally committed to the rule of law. It is imperative that ACJRC and ALL ACJRC members get on board early and work to make sure Justice Mendheim gets elected to a full six year term in 2020.
Justice Greg Shaw's term on the Supreme Court is up in 2020. So, it looks like Justice Shaw and Justice Mendeim will be on the ballot in 2020. On the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals, Judge Bill Thompson and Judge Scott Donaldson will be up for election. On the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals, Judge Mary Windom and Judge Beth Kellum will be up for election in 2020.
