Governor Perry has made two recent appointments to our intermediate appellate courts.

Today, he appointed Lana Myers to the Fifth District Court of Appeals at Dallas.  Myers has served as an administrative judge for the Dallas County Criminal Criminal courts.  Myers will fill the place on the court that opened up when Justice Carolyn Wright was appointed to Chief Justice of the Dallas Court of Appeals.  The Governor’s press release regarding the appointment may be viewed here.

The Governor also appointed Tracy Christopher to the Fourteenth District Court of Appeals at Houston.  Christopher was previously Judge of the 295th District Court of Harris County.  Christopher fills the place on that court, which opened up when the Governor appointed Justice Guzman to the Texas Supreme Court.  To view the Governor’s press release regarding this appointment, see this link.

Both justices will stand for election in 2010.
