Gov. Bob Riley has appointed Brian Huff to replace Jefferson County Family Court Judge Sandra Storm. Huff’s appointment is effective immediately, but it’s not clear how quickly he will be able to begin hearing cases. Here’s an article about the appointment from the Birmingham News.
Brian is smart, caring, and savvy, and I am proud of him. I know he will serve effectively in sorting out the cases he hears. The Jefferson County Family Court hears cases involving children and families like paternity, child support, child abuse, and truancy but not those involving divorces.
Brian is current president of the Family Law Section of the Alabama State Bar Association. I wish him well in a tough job.
