Linda Jennings is hugged by daughter Adrian Pierce after she was sworn in yesterday as a new Lucas County Common Pleas Court judge. Gov. Bob Taft this month appointed Ms. Jennings, 57, to fill a vacancy created when Judge Jack Zouhary was appointed to the U.S. District Court bench. Judge Jennings, a Republican and former lawyer in private practice, will seek election in November to a different common pleas judgeship.
