Region 8 Native To Be Sworn In Today as Chief Justice

January 5, 2004 - Posted at 7:59 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Lawrence County native Betty Dickey is to be sworn in today as Arkansas Chief Justice, which will make her the first woman to hold the office.

Governor Huckabee appointed Dickey, his chief legal counsel, to serve as interim chief justice in the place of Chief Justice W.H. "Dub" Arnold, who announced his resignation last month.

The 63-year-old will serve through the end of the year, but will not be eligible to run for the post in the November 2004 election.  A replacement will be elected to serve the remaining four years of Arnold's term.

Dickey will be sworn in this morning at 11 a.m.
