Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Lisabeth Abramson

Andrew Wolfson with the Courier Journal reported today that–

“Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Lisabeth Hughes Abramson of Louisville is being vetted by the FBI for a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals’ 6th Circuit.

Abramson, who has served on state high court since 2007, would be “a terrific appointment,” U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, D-Louisville said Monday in a statement.

Two high-level public officials confirmed that they had been interviewed as part of the screening process for the appeals court, which is one rung below the U.S. Supreme Court. They said they couldn’t be named because the FBI requested that they not comment.

Abramson, 58, did not respond to phone and email messages.”
