Quorum Court to nominate interim judge

LAWRENCE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - The Lawrence County Quorum Court will hold a special meeting on Tuesday, Sept 27.

According to a press release, the meeting will allow the court to appoint an interim county judge to serve for the remainder of the year.

This comes following the passing of former Lawrence County Judge Dale Freeman.

Freeman was injured in a car crash near Cabot last month and died on Sept. 17.

Last week, the Lawrence County Democrats nominated John Thomison to replace Freeman on the November ballot.

The court will meet at 5:30 p.m. in the conference room of the Lawrence County Courthouse.
