The Harrisonburg-Rockingham County Bar Association has endorsed two attorneys for an expected circuit court vacancy and one for general district court.
The circuit court seat now belongs to retiring Judge James Lane. Judge William Heatwole is retiring from the district court bench.
The bar endorsed Bruce Albertson and Bill Helsey for the circuit court seat on Wednesday, according to the Daily News-Record. James Clough got the nod for the district court bench.
The bar recommendations go to Senator Mark Obenshain, the paper reports, who does not always follow the bar’s endorsements in his judicial nominations.
