Keller to Be Sworn In As Kentucky Supreme Court Justice

Michelle Keller, the newest addition to the Kentucky Supreme Court

The newest justice on Kentucky's Supreme Court will formally be sworn in this week, giving the court a record three women on the bench at one time.

Justice Michelle Keller will take the oath Tuesday in the Capitol. The swearing in will take place at 11 a.m. and is open to the public.

Keller previously served on the state Court of Appeals, and Beshear appointed her to the 6th Supreme Court District in April.

There are seven justices on the Supreme Court. Never in state history have three of them been women.
