RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The investiture of the Virginia Supreme Court’s new chief justice is scheduled for this week in Richmond.

The Thursday ceremony for Justice Donald W. Lemons is open to the public but seating is limited. Gov. Terry McAuliffe is scheduled to deliver remarks.

Lemons succeeds Chief Justice Cynthia Kinser, who retired Dec. 31. Lemons’ four-year term began Jan. 1.

The General Assembly elected Lemons twice as a justice, in 2000 and 2012.

He previously served as judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia and as a Richmond Circuit Court judge.
