Topeka Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has appointed a Leawood attorney to fill a vacancy in on the Johnson County District Court.
The Republican governor announced Monday that Christina Marie Dunn will fill the opening on the 10th District bench. She replaces Judge Allen R. Slater, who is retiring.
Dunn is a partner with the Gellenborg and Dunn law firm in Olathe. She received her law degree from the University of Kansas School of Law in 1994. Dunn has previously worked for the Johnson County Bar Association board of directors and in the 10th Judicial District Attorney's office.
Brownback selected Dunn from three candidates submitted for consideration by the 10th Judicial District Nominating Commission.
