Longtime legislator to fill vacant Family Court judgeship

FRANKFORT Ky. – Governor Steve Beshear today appointed Kathy W. Stein as circuit judge for the 22nd Judicial Circuit, Division 6.

The appointment fills a vacant Fayette County Family Court judgeship. Stein, a Lexington attorney, previously served in the General Assembly as a state senator and a representative.

“Senator Stein’s extensive legal experience and long tenure in the Legislature demonstrate her commitment to public service, and she is well-qualified for the position of Family Court judge in Fayette County,” Gov. Beshear said.

The Family Court vacancy was created when Judge Jo Ann Wise retired in August.
