The Pulaski County Bar Association has sent out a notice that Former Supreme Court Chief Justice Richard Adkisson died this morning. Funeral will be at 10:30 a.m. Friday, May 20.

Adkisson was elected chief justice in 1980 and served until 1984. Prior to that he was a Pulaski County Circuit Judge and a prosecutor.

A funny note we turned up: Politics Daily reminded us in an article about Arkansas, the Hogs and politics that Adkisson printed an endorsement of 27 former Razorback lettermen in his campaign advertising in 1980.

I expect more pertinent information from those who knew the judge in comments here.
