Brewer appoints 2 to AZ Court of Appeals

.

Gov. Jan Brewer is naming a superior court judge and a lawyer to serve on the Arizona Court of Appeals.

Judge Samuel Thumma and attorney Randall Howe were appointed Wednesday by Brewer to the state’s appellate court.

Thumma has presided in Maricopa County Superior Court since 2007. He will replace Judge Patrick Irvine, who resigned.

Brewer says Thumma is highly regarded in legal circles for his knowledge of the law and his temperament.

Howe has worked in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona since 2008. As a deputy appellate attorney, Howe has represented the federal government in the U.S. Court of Appeals. Brewer cites Howe’s experience and appreciation for judicial restraint as qualities needed for the position.

Howe will replace retired Judge Daniel Barker.
