Congratulations to Kent C. Sullivan, who has just been appointed by the Governor to the Fourteenth Court of Appeals in Houston. He will be serving out the unexpired term of Justice Wanda Fowler, and he will stand for re-election in 2010.

Justice Sullivan was formerly the First Assistant Attorney General, the highest-ranking appointee at the Texas Attorney General’s office (where I had the pleasure of serving with him) and, before that, he was a district judge in Houston.
