Gov. Doug Ducey welcomes Kathryn Hackett King as the newest member of the Arizona Supreme Court.

Gov. Doug Ducey last week named Kathryn Hackett King to the Arizona Supreme Court.

She replaces another Ducey appointee, Andrew Gould, who had stepped down to run for Attorney General.

King is the sixth justice Ducey has appointed to the Supreme Court —  a record. And it’s a legacy that will outlast his administration, which will end in early January of 2023, as the governor is term-limited from running again.

Phoenix attorney Paul Weich writes and reports the Arizona's Law blog, a nonprofit journalism initiative covering the Arizona legal system; it also airs on Sun Sounds of Arizona as "AZ Law."

The Show spoke with Weich to learn the significance of Ducey's appointments.
