COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Thomas Herbert, a former lawmaker and federal bankruptcy judge and one of two father-son pairings to serve on the Ohio Supreme Court, has died. He was 86.

The Ohio Supreme Court says Herbert died on Sunday and memorial arrangements are pending.

Herbert succeeded his father, Paul Herbert, on Jan. 1, 1969, one day after his father finished his term as justice.

Thomas Herbert was elected to two six-year terms, then resigned in 1980 to go into private practice. He later served two years on the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Columbus.

Herbert was a member of the Ohio House in the early 1960s and served on the Franklin County appeals court before running for Supreme Court justice.

Herbert’s son, Paul Herbert II, is a Franklin County Municipal Court judge.
