White, Morrison gain full terms
SoVaNow.com / January 21, 2013Two local judges appointed on an interim basis last year were confirmed to full terms on the bench last week by the General Assembly.
The legislature approved Circuit Judge Kimberly Slayton White for a six-year term and Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court Judge Robert Morrison for a four-year term.
White and Morrison were recess appointments in the wake of the General Assembly’s inability last year to agree on candidates to fill vacancies in the 10th Judicial Circuit. Gov. Bob McDonnell tapped White to fill an opening created by the 2011 retirement of Farmville Circuit Judge Richard Blanton, and Morrison was named by local circuit judges to succeed retiring Juvenile and Domestic Relations Judge Michael Rand of South Boston.
White, whose earlier efforts to win a judgeship drew stiff resistance from state Senate Democrats, continued to run into scattered opposition last week during confirmation votes in the Assembly. According to state Sen. Frank Ruff, three members of the Senate walked out rather than vote for White — following the tradition in the Chamber of not voting “no” on judicial candidates.
White has presided primarily in the northern part of the 10th Judicial Circuit since becoming a judge in August.
The 10th Judicial Circuit includes Halifax as well as Appomattox, Buckingham, Charlotte, Cumberland, Lunenburg, Mecklenburg, and Prince Edward counties.
