Gov. Sam Brownback has appointed a Kansas City, Kan., attorney to a seat on the state trial court in Wyandotte County.
Delia Maria York replaces District Judge John J. McNally, who resigned in September. York was appointed Wednesday and will serve the remainder of McNally's term, which expires in January 2015.
York has practiced law for nearly 20 years. She is currently assistant counsel for the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan. She joined that office in 1998, after working as an assistant district attorney in the county.
