As predicted here, Sebelius names Biles to Kansas Supreme Court

Governor Kathleen Sebelius today named Overland Park Attorney and Democrat-donor Dan Biles to the vacancy on the Kansas Supreme Court caused by Chief Justice Kay McFarland’s mandatory retirement. We predicted that she would choose Biles last month. Of the three nominees, Biles was the most controversial, given his involvement in a number of high profile cases.

We will have more coverage later today.

Updates

Justice Biles is expected to formally take office next month. He will be up for a retention election in November 2010.
