Lawyer relishes Supreme Court role

Posted: Updated:

ERLANGER, Ky. (AP) -- Dennis Repenning says he was surprised and thrilled to be asked to serve as a special justice on the Kentucky Supreme Court.

Repenning heard arguments on March 13 in allegations of professional misconduct against a Bowling Green attorney. As is often the case with special justices, Repenning was asked to write the opinion for the court.

He told The Kentucky Enquirer he is pleased to be able to take as much time as he needs for that job.

The Kentucky Supreme Court consists of seven justices. A special justice is appointed when two or more sitting justices recuse themselves from a case.

Supreme Court Clerk Susan Stokley Clary said last year there were about a dozen cases where special justices were needed.
