Adair Countians will have the opportunity to hear first hand how the Supreme Court of Kentucky works for you. Justice Daniel J. Venters will be speaking to the Columbia - Adair County Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet on Tuesday April 21, 2009, at 6:30pmCT in the evening, at the Cranmer Dining Center on Helen Flatt Drive at Lindsey Wilson College, Columbia, KY.

Justice Venters will discuss the roles of the Supreme Court in state government. Most people are familiar with the role of the Supreme Court as the court of last resort, but the Supreme Court also defines and interprets the law and it establishes the rules that govern the Courts of Kentucky and the practice of law in Kentucky.

Justice Venters was elected to the Supreme Court of Kentucky in November 2008 and represents the 3rd Supreme Court District.

Justice Venters comes to the Supreme Court of Kentucky with over 24 years of prior judicial experience: serving from 1975 to 1979 as Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney under then Commonwealth's Attorney (now U.S. Congressman) Hal Rogers, from 1979 to 1984 as District Judge for Pulaski and Rockcastle Counties, and from 1984 to 2003 as Circuit Judge for Pulaski, Lincoln, and Rockcastle Counties.

In 2003, he retired from the trial court bench and returned to private law practice in Somerset. The 3rd Supreme Court District is comprised of Adair, Bell, Casey, Clay, Clinton, Cumberland, Estill, Garrard, Green, Jackson, Knox, Laurel, Lee, Leslie, Lincoln, Marion, McCreary, Metcalfe, Monroe, Nelson, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Russell, Taylor, Washington, Wayne and Whitley counties.
