MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A coalition of Alabama business groups has endorsed five incumbent appellate court judges for the 2014 elections.


The chairman of the Alabama Civil Justice Reform Committee, Tom Dart, said Wednesday the group endorsed early because all five Republican judges have done a good job and deserve to be elected. None of them has an opponent so far.


The committee endorsed Justice Greg Shaw on the state Supreme Court, Judges Bill Thompson and Scott Donaldson for the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals, and Judges Beth Kellum and Mary Windom on the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals.


All have run statewide and have won before except Donaldson. The governor appointed Donaldson to the Court of Civil Appeals in January to fill a vacancy.


No other appellate court seats are up next year.
