Mims appointed to Virginia Supreme Court
- March 11, 2010
The General Assembly unanimously appointed former Attorney General Bill Mims to the Virginia Supreme Court.
Mims served as Gov. Bob McDonnell’s chief deputy attorney general until McDonnell resigned last year to concentrate on his gubernatorial race. Mims then succeeded McDonnell and served the rest of his term. Since January Mims has worked at law firm Hunton & Williams.
“We need individuals of Bill’s character and intelligence in public service, and while he may have thought his time serving Virginia was over, today’s appointment is welcome news to all of us who know just how uniquely qualified and decent a person he is,” McDonnell said in a statement.
