Supreme Court Justice Michelle Keller of Kenton County currently holds that position.
Keller, who is seeking another 8-year term in 2022, was first appointed to the Court in April 2013 by Gov. Steve Beshear, D-Kentucky. She won the election to a full term in November 2014. Prior to her service on the bench, Justice Keller practiced law for 17 years. She served as an assistant county attorney for her home county of Kenton. Her private practice concentrated in the areas of medical negligence and product liability defense, personal injury and family law, and criminal defense, according to her biography.
"After spending over two decades in the legislature advocating for common sense conservative values, I have decided to seek election to Kentucky’s highest court," Fischer said in a release.
"I look forward to meeting with voters throughout the district to discuss how my experience in law, business and government has prepared me to excel in this important judicial position."
