Kaine to tap Goodwyn for high court

Gov. Tim Kaine will appoint Chesapeake Circuit Judge S. Bernard Goodwyn to the Supreme Court of Virginia, according to the Associated Press.

The governor will hold a news conference this morning to introduce his choice.

Goodwyn, 46, will succeed Justice Elizabeth B. Lacy, who retired in August. Goodwyn will be the second African-American justice on the current court, joining Chief Justice Leroy Rountree Hassell Sr.
