According to this story in the Las Cruces Sun-News, Governor Susana Martinez has appointed Judge J. Miles Hanisee to the Court of Appeals seat being vacated by Chief Judge Celia Foy Castillo.
Governor Martinez appointed Judge Hanisee to the Court of Appeals in 2011, but he was defeated by Judge Monica Zamora in last month’s general election. Judge Hanisee will have to run in the 2014 general election to keep his new seat.
Congratulations to Judge Hanisee on this second chance.
