First Circuit Court of Appeal Judge Will Crain announced he is running for the Associate Justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court seat in District 1 previously held by Justice Greg Guidry.

Guidry was recently appointed to the federal bench by President Trump, leaving a vacancy that will result in a special election to fill the seat.

Crain, a 57-year old Republican and native of Bogalusa, graduated from LSU with a degree in accounting and he later received a law degree from LSU Law School.

He has served for 22 years as a partner and lawyer at the Jones Fussell Law Firm in Covington, litigating cases in both state and federal courts.
