Governor Rick Perry Expected To Appoint Sowder From DA To Judge

Now that the special session is over, Governor Rick Perry can make appointments.

One appointment may have a Lubbock attorney working the other side of the bench. It's a chain of events that started in April when Governor Perry appointed Phil Johnson to the Texas Supreme Court. In turn, Mackey Hancock was appointed to the 7th Court of Appeals in Amarillo, leaving an opening for district judge in Lubbock. Governor Perry is expected to appoint District Attorney Bill Sowder to that opening on Monday. Assistant District Attorney Matt Powell is expected to move up to District Attorney if that happens.
