Judicial shuffle

I hate this. Finding out about an error in the print edition before it's been distributed. But here goes.

We went to press at noon Tuesday. The print edition includes an Insider that says District Judge Alice Lightle, presiding over Little Rock environmental court by appointment to complete David Stewart's term, had decided to run for retiring Circuit Judge John Langston's seat in 2008.

She had wanted to run for Lee Munson's district judgeship, but Munson had said he intended to seek re-election and she didn't want to oppose the incumbent. But today, Lightle said, Munson, already retired from a chancery bench seat, informed her that he planned to retire from the district court. So she will be running for that seat. Hugh Finkelstein, a deputy prosecutor, had already announced he'd be a candidate for the job.
