OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Gov. Mary Fallin has filled a vacant district judge’s seat in Tulsa and Pawnee counties.
Fallin said Friday she has named Kelly Morgan Greenough to the judicial vacancy. Greenough replaces the late Carlos Chappelle, who retired last year.
Greenough, of Tulsa, is director of Tulsa County’s domestic violence court, which is the first of its kind in Oklahoma. She previously spent more than five years with the county public defender’s office.
Greenough was responsible for designing and implementing Tulsa County’s integrated domestic violence court, which began operating in 2014. She handles day-to-day operations of the court, along with financial reporting associated with the U.S. Department of Justice grant that funds it.
Greenough previously represented children in adoptions, guardianships and high-conflict divorce and paternity cases as a public defender.
