Hamilton county commissioners voted today to appoint local attorney Rob Philyaw to replace Suzanne Bailey as Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge.

Philyaw was nominated by Commissioner Jim Fields and voted in by Commissioners Joe Graham, Marty Haynes, Larry Henry and Fred Skillern.

Earlier this year, Bailey said she would retire at the end of April.

Bailey took office in 1990 and had been the first woman elected to a judgeship here.
