Parnell taps Allard

JUNEAU (AP) — Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell has named Marjorie Allard of Anchorage to the state Court of Appeals.

She will fill the vacancy caused by the upcoming retirement of Chief Judge Robert Coats.

The governor’s office said Friday that Allard recently became a staff attorney at the Court of Appeals. She formerly served as an assistant public defender, first working on criminal appeals and eventually working on child-in-need-of-aid cases and appeals.

She also served at the Office of Public Advocacy, working on felony trials. Allard has been a civil litigator as well.
