CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead says he chose someone with high ethics who respects the lawmaking process when he made Laramie County District Judge Michael K. Davis his first appointment to the Wyoming Supreme Court on Thursday.

Mead said he didn’t ask the nominees how they would rule on specific cases, but he says he knows they have respect for laws.

Mead named Davis to succeed Justice Michael Golden on the five-member court.

Davis said in a statement released by Mead’s office that he’s honored by the appointment and vowed to work hard to serve the state and its residents. Davis was presiding over a case Thursday afternoon and was not immediately available for comment, according to his staff.

State Supreme Court justices serve eight-year terms, but a new justice is subjected to a statewide vote in the general election following the first year.
