    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Susan Carney will be the newest member of the Alaska Supreme Court.

    Gov. Bill Walker announced Carney's appointment on Thursday. She will replace Justice Dana Fabe, who will retire June 1.

    The announcement came during the annual Alaska Bar Association convention in Anchorage.

    Carney is a supervising attorney for the Office of Public Advocacy in Fairbanks.

    She was among four finalists for the position, as recommended by the Alaska Judicial Council on March 31.

    The other finalists were Anchorage Superior Court Judge Andrew Guidi; Anchorage private attorney Jahna Lindemuth, and Juneau Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg of Juneau.

    Carney says she is humbled by her selection to the court.
