TAMPA — A 50-year-old Hillsborough County judge was appointed to a vacancy on the Circuit Court bench, Gov. Charlie Crist's office said Wednesday.
Judge Paul Lee Huey joined the Hillsborough County Court bench in 2002 and practiced law at two firms since 1985, Trenam Kemker and Bush, Ross, Gardner, Warren and Rudy.
He graduated from the University of Florida with an accounting degree and went to law school at Duke University, the governor's office said.
Huey replaces Judge Charlene Edwards Honeywell on the Tampa-based 13th Judicial Circuit. Honeywell became a federal judge in November 2009.
