CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia Supreme Court Chief Justice Margaret Workman has assigned two senior status judges to hear cases in the 2nd Circuit until a vacancy is filled.

The vacancy will be created on March 31 when Judge Mark A. Karl retires.

Workman issued an administrative order on Tuesday assigning Senior Status Judge Robert B. Stone to preside from April 1 to April 30. Senior Status Judge Arthur Recht will begin hearing cases in the circuit on May 1.

Recht will hear cases until Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin appoints Karl’s successor.

The 2nd Circuit covers Marshall, Tyler and Wetzel counties.
