Judges in Lynchburg, Clarke, Prince William to step down

Three more judges have announced that they will retire next year rather than seek appointment to another term.

General District Judge Norman deV. Morrison of Clarke County and Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Judges James Bailey Robeson of
Prince William County and Philip Arthur Wallace of Lynchburg have notified the Supreme Court of Virginia and the Division of Legislative Services of their retirement plans.

They are in addition to at least 11 other judges who had announced their retirements. Five of them, including Court of Appeals Judge Jean Harrison Clements, had reached the mandatory retirement age of 70.

Judges up for reappointment will be interviewed Dec. 11 by members of the House and Senate Courts of Justice Committees.
