Judge David Tapp ('93) seeks Kentucky Supreme Court seat

Judge David Tapp, a 1993 Brandeis School of Law graduate who has been a circuit judge for 14 years, is seeking a seat on the Kentucky Supreme Court, reports WKYU FM.

If elected, Tapp would replace Justice Daniel Venters, who decided not to seek re-election after more than three decades on the high court.

Tapp has received national attention for his drug court program, which relies on medically assisted treatment for some addicts.  In May, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky appointed Tapp to a national juvenile justice advisory board.
