TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Caleb Stegall is scheduled to be sworn in as the Kansas Supreme Court’s newest justice on Dec. 5.

The Supreme Court announced the swearing in-ceremony Friday.

Stegall currently serves on the Kansas Court of Appeals. Gov. Sam Brownback appointed him to the state’s highest court last month.

It was Brownback’s first appointment to the seven-member Supreme Court. Stegall will replace former Justice Nancy Moritz, who was appointed to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Stegall is 42 and was serving as Brownback’s chief counsel when the governor appointed him to the Court of Appeals last year. He served as Jefferson County’s elected prosecutor for two years before joining Brownback’s staff in January 2011.
