Gov. Doug Ducey appointed Arizona Appeals Court Judge Andrew Gould and Solicitor General John Lopez to the state Supreme Court on Monday.
The appointments come after the Legislature expanded the court by two seats, to seven, earlier this year.
Judge Gould was appointed to the state Court of Appeals in 2012. He was also Superior Court judge in Yuma.
Lopez is the first Hispanic to be appointed to Arizona’s highest court. Before he was solicitor general he served in the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Attorney General Mark Brnovich said Lopez “will be a brilliant justice on our state Supreme Court.”
