Kaine taps three for Norfolk Circuit Court

In this Monday’s edition of Virginia Lawyers Weekly, our Alan Cooper reported that Gov. Tim Kaine was preparing to name several judges to the circuit bench in Norfolk.

Today’s the day: The governor, according to a release from his office, has appointed three men – a General District Judge, a J&DR judge and a commonwealth’s attorney – to the openings. They are:

* Judge Louis A. Sherman, who has been a Norfolk General District judge since 1995. He was executive director of the Tidewater Legal Aid Society for five years.

* Judge Jerrauld C. Jones, a Norfolk J&DR judge since 2005. He served the area in the House of Delegates from 1988 to 2002.

* John R. “Jack” Doyle III, Norfolk’s commonwealth’s attorney since 2000.
