Daniel W. Greear shakes hands with Gov. Jim Justice during a press conference on July 2, 2018.

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has appointed Daniel W. Greear to a vacant judicial position.

Greear fills a vacancy in the 13th Judicial Circuit Court created when Judge James Stucky retired. Greear most recently served as chief of staff for House of Delegates Speaker Tim Armstead. He lives in Kanawha County with his wife and two sons.

Stucky, who retired in April, spent 21 years presiding over cases in Kanawha County.

Greear will serve until a judge is chosen by special election during the Nov. 8 general election. The special election is required because more than two years were left on Stucky's term.
