Kent Cattani appointed to Arizona Court of Appeals

PHOENIX (AP) - A lawyer who has worked for the Arizona Attorney General's Office since 1991 has been appointed to the Arizona Court of Appeals.

He fills the vacancy created by the appointment of Ann Scott Timmer to the Arizona Supreme Court.

Cattani previously was chief counsel of the Criminal Appeals and Capital Litigation Division of the AG's Office.

In the chief counsel role, Cattani supervised all felony appeals for the state and federal habeas proceedings in federal courts. He also oversaw capital post-conviction proceedings in Arizona trial courts.

He graduated from University of California, Berkley School of Law and has been licensed to practice law in Arizona since 1986.
