Valdez judge selected for Juneau Superior Court

Juneau Empire – Daniel Schally’s first time in Alaska was as an intern for the City and Borough of Juneau’s Law Department. Now, he’s returning to Juneau, this time as a Superior Court judge.

Gov. Bill Walker named Schally as Juneau’s newest Superior Court judge. The position replaces a District Court judge position left by the retirement of Thomas Nave. The new Superior Court seat was created by the Alaska Legislature earlier this year in response to the rising number of felony cases in Juneau. A district court typically handles misdemeanors, while superior court typically handles felonies.
