Judge Glenn E. Acree of Lexington has been elected by his fellow judges to serve as chief judge of the Kentucky Court of Appeals. His term as chief judge will begin July 1. “I will do my best to live up to the fine examples of the chief judges who have preceded me,” he said. “I draw strength from the support of my fellow judges and, more significantly, I am inspired by our unsung support staff who remain dedicated to ensuring justice for all Kentuckians despite being asked to make personal sacrifices necessitated by the underfunding of the Judicial Branch.”
