President Nominates Fourth Circuit Judge From VA

Yesterday President Bush nominated Va Supreme Court Justice G. Steven Agee to the Fourth Circuit. This is for the seat to which the President had previously nominated Virginian Duncan Getchell, a nomination withdrawn after senate opposition.

Both Virginia senators (Warner and Webb) are applauding the nomination. Agee was on their short list of five candidates.

Agee served on the Virginia Court of Appeals (2001-2003) before elevating to the high court in 2003. Before joining the bench, he worked more than 20 years as a defense attorney handling litigation, commercial law, and some criminal cases. He was also an elected delegate to the Va General Assembly for 12 years. He's a 1977 graduate of UVA law school.
