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

Kent Cattani's appointment was announced Friday by Gov. Jan Brewer.

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.
