Former chief justice joins firm

BIRMINGHAM (AP) — Former Alabama Chief Justice Drayton Nabers will soon join a Birmingham law firm.

The Maynard, Cooper and Gale law firm announced Thursday that Nabers will become a shareholder in the firm on April 1 and will focus on mediation and arbitration.

Nabers served as president and CEO of Protective Life insurance company in Birmingham before retiring in 2002. He joined Gov. Bob Riley's Cabinet as state finance director in 2003. Riley appointed him chief justice in 2004 to fill the unexpired term of Roy Moore. Nabers won the Republican primary last year but lost the general election to Democrat Sue Bell Cobb.

Nabers is also an adjunct instructor at Samford University's Beeson Divinity School, where he teaches Christian ethics.
