Appeal Court Gets Three More Judges

The Court of Appeal is one step closer to reaching its goal of having 12 judges by 2020 after yesterday's swearing-in of Solicitor-General Nicole Foster-Pusey and Justices Jennifer Straw and Carol Edwards in a ceremony held at King's House in St Andrew.

Their appointments bring the number of Appeal Court judges to 10, which, according to the court's president, Justice C. Dennis Morrison, is partly due to the recent expansion of the Court of Appeal building in downtown Kingston.
