MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam has appointed Oscar C. Carr III as chancellor for Shelby County.

In a Thursday news release, Haslam says Carr, of Memphis, is replacing Kenny Armstrong, who had been chancellor of the 30th Judicial District. Armstrong was recently named to the Tennessee Court of Appeals.

Chancellors serve as the judges for the chancery courts of each judicial district in Tennessee.

The 63-year-old Carr has been a member of the law firm Glankler Brown since 1976, with a practice in litigation and an emphasis on business, construction, environmental and other civil litigation. Carr also has handled mediations.

Haslam calls Carr an experienced attorney with an impressive track record.
