Brownback nominates his chief counsel for appeals court

Wielding new power handed to him by lawmakers, the Kansas governor turned to his own administration to fill a seat on the state Court of Appeals. Brownback nominated his chief legal counsel, Caleb Stegall, for a newly created 14th seat on the appeals court. It marks Brownback’s first appointment with a new law that lets the governor unilaterally nominate judges to the court.
