Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear announced Friday that Judge Jay Delaney will be seated to replace Judge Robert McGinnis in Harrison Circuit Court.
McGinnis resigned earlier this year and has been a senior status judge, which allowed him to continue until a replacement was named.
Delaney was elected as Harrison District Judge in November 2006 and has served since January 2007.
He has already announced his intent to seek election to that office in the November 2010 election.
