        MIDDLETOWN — The Ohio 12th District Court of Appeals has chosen its presiding and administrative judges, the court announced in a news release this week.

        Judge James E. Walsh of Fairfield Township has been elected presiding judge, while Judge Stephen W. Powell of West Chester has been named administrative judge.

        Elected by a majority vote of the court's judges, the presiding judge leads all court sessions and meetings of the court.

        Before his 1990 election to the appellate court, Judge Walsh served for 12 years on the Fairfield Municipal Court bench.

        As administrative judge, Judge Powell is responsible for court scheduling and other matters, including filling in when the presiding judge is absent.

        Before his 1994 election to the appellate court, Judge Powell served as a Butler County probate judge for four years and a Butler County Court Judge from 1988 to 1990.

        The appeals court also includes Judge William W. Young of Lebanon and Judge Anthony Valen of Middletown.
