Gov. Laura Kelly on Wednesday nominated Wichita lawyer Amy Cline to fill a seat on the Kansas Court of Appeals after the first nominee failed to gain Senate confirmation.
Kelly picked Cline from three candidates screened by a nominating committee the governor stablished to review judicial nominees.
The governor nominated Cline after the Senate rejected federal public defender Carl Folsom III. Cline would replace retired Judge G. Joseph Pierron Jr.
