TULSA, OK -- Governor Brad Henry has filed two judgeships in the 14th Judicial District in Tulsa County. In a news release, the Governor appointed Carlos Chappelle to Office 6 and Kurt G. Glassco to Office 14.

"It is my privilege to appoint to the bench people of such tremendous experience and abilities," said Governor Brad Henry.

The 58-year-old Chappelle has practiced law in Tulsa for 28 years. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1973 and later earned his law degree from the University of Tulsa.

"Carlos Chappelle has the legal mind, integrity and temperament needed to be an excellent judge," Governor Henry said.

Glassco, 54, has been in private practice since 1986. Prior to that time, he was an assistant district attorney in Tulsa County before serving as general counsel for then-Gov. George Night. He graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1978 and earned his law degree from the University of Tulsa.

"Kurt Glassco possesses an impressive wealth of experience and expertise, and I am confident he will be an excellent asset to the bench," said Governor Henry.   

Chappelle succeeds Judge Gordon McAllister, while Glassco succeeds Judge Michael Gassett.

Both McAllister and Gassett retired from the bench.
