Governor Brownback's former chief legal counsel is set to take a seat on the Kansas Court of Appeals.
A swearing-in ceremony for Caleb Stegall is scheduled for Friday, with Court of Appeals Chief Judge Tom Malone presiding.
Stegall is filling a new, 14th seat on the state's second-highest court.
Stegall's appointment by the Republican governor has received quite a bit of attention.
It's because he's the first Court of Appeals appointment under a new law that took effect in July.
And partly because of his position as Brownback's chief lawyer.
