Today’s Bar Bulletin announces (at p. 9) that Linda Vanzi has been unanimously elected as Chief Judge of the New Mexico Court of Appeals. She replaces Judge Michael Vigil, who swore her into office on January 17.
Chief Judge Vanzi has served on the Court of Appeals since 2009. Before that, she served as a trial judge on the Second Judicial District Court. In both positions she has developed a reputation as a decisive, fair, and hard-working judge.
Congratulations to Chief Judge Vanzi!
