Kentucky Court of Justice
Jason Nemes named acting director of Administrative Office of the Courts
Chief Justice Joseph E. Lambert has named Jason Nemes as acting director of the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) as of Jan. 1, 2007. Nemes will temporarily replace AOC Director Melinda L. Wheeler, who has resigned effective Dec.31.
"While serving as my chief of staff and counsel, Jason has obtained a firm grasp of the operations of the Kentucky Court of Justice," said Chief Justice Lambert. "His expertise and strong commitment to our court system will provide continuity to the AOC during the search for a permanent director."
"During a year of transition for our court, Jason was quickly available and capable," said Chief Judge Sara Combs of the Kentucky Court of Appeals.
"I have worked closely with Jason on Washington County's Project Development Board," said Circuit Judge Doughlas George. "He is very knowledgeable about the AOC, the Judicial Branch budget and court operations."
Jason is a Louisville native. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Western Kentucky University and a juris doctor from the University of Louisville School of Law, where he currently serves as an adjunct professor of constitutional law and appellate practice. He and his wife, Leslie, live in Louisville with their son, Samuel.
