TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has filled a vacant trial court judgeship in the Kansas City area.

Brownback announced Tuesday that he appointed Leawood attorney Paul Gurney as a district court judge in Johnson County. He was one of three attorneys named as finalists for the vacancy by a local nominating commission.

Gurney is the senior trial counsel for an Overland Park law firm, where he's worked since 1999.

He'll replace District Judge Thomas Bornholdt, who announced his retirement late last year. Bornholdt had served as a judge since October 1993.

The other finalists for the judgeship were attorneys Timothy McCarthy of Overland Park and Jacquelyn Rokusek of Olathe.
