WA lawyers Hylton Quail, Kate Glancy and Fiona Vernon have been appointed as judges of the state’s District Court.
Two of the appointments will be covered by current budget allocations to fill holes in WA’s court system from the previous Liberal Party government.
The third appointment will fill a vacancy left by the retirement of Her Honour Judge Anette Schoombee at the end of the year.
“I congratulate Ms Vernon, Mr Quail and Ms Glancy on their appointments,” attorney general John Quigley said.
Mr Quail is currently a barrister who has practised primarily as a criminal lawyer and has held roles in the Law Society of WA and the president of the Criminal Layers Association of WA.
Ms Glancy is the Deputy State Solicitor and is responsible for managing the Civil Wrongs Team.
Ms Vernon is a barrister with more than 30 years of legal experience.
She has acted for statory boards including the Legal Practice Board and the Medical Board.
“Ms Glancy, Mr Quail and Ms Vernon have all served with distinction and are highly regarded in the legal profession,” Mr Quigley said.
“(I) wish them all the best in their new roles.”
