FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Louisiana Supreme Court announced today that Carol R. Leblanc and William W. Hall have been appointed to the Judiciary Commission of Louisiana, for four-year terms commencing March 22, 2009 and September 1, 2009, respectively. The Judiciary Commission is a nine-member constitutional body, empowered to review allegations of judicial misconduct and to recommend to the Supreme Court that a judge be sanctioned when misconduct is proven by clear and convincing evidence.


Leblanc is a graduate of Meadows-Draughn Business College and is presently an Administrative Assistant for the North Lafourche Conservation, Levee & Drainage District. She has long history of civic service in Lafourche Parish and in state government. In 2005 she was inducted as an honorary member of the Louisiana Center for Women & Government Hall of Fame at Nicholls State University. Leblanc was selected by the Louisiana District Judges Association to succeed Mrs. Len G. Ciaravella as a member of the Judiciary Commission.


William W. Hall, a private practice attorney in Jefferson Parish, received his undergraduate (1971) and law degree (1973) from Louisiana State University. From 1973-1987, Hall was an Assistant District Attorney in Jefferson Parish and from 1980-2006 he served as Special Assistant Attorney General for the State of Louisiana. An active member of the Louisiana State Bar Association, Hall has served in leadership positions on the Committee of Professional Responsibility and is a member of the American Bar Association, the Louisiana Association for Justice, and the Louisiana Defense Counsel. In 1992 Hall served as Chair of the Louisiana Lawyer Disciplinary Board. Hall was selected by the Conference of Court of Appeal Judges to succeed attorney Ronald M. Macaluso.
