New Supreme Court Justice Sworn In

JANUARY 4, 2007 - Posted at 7:52 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The Arkansas Supreme Court welcomes a new member, with Booneville Circuit Court Judge Paul Danielson taking the oath as an associate justice. Danielson was sworn in to serve the remaining two years of an associate justice position.

Danielson defeated Appeals Court Judge Wendell Griffen in the nonpartisan judicial elections in May. He replaces Betty Dickey, who was appointed to the position through the end of last year. Dickey was appointed after Jim Hannah jumped from associate justice to chief justice after an election in 2004.

Also, sitting justices Donald Corbin, Robert Brown and Annabelle Clinton Imber took their oaths to serve another eight years. Corbin won re-election against Maumelle District Court Judge Roger Harrod. Imber and Brown did not face any opposition.
