January 3, 2011, Juneau, Alaska - Governor Sean Parnell today appointed Gregory Miller to the Anchorage Superior Court. Miller will fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Stephanie Joannides.
Miller, of Anchorage, has practiced law for 22 years. He is currently in private practice with the law firm of Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot, where he is also a shareholder. He serves as a litigation attorney with broad experience in civil, criminal, and administrative law. Miller received a juris doctorate from the Northeastern University School of Law. He is a member of the Iditarod Air Force, the president of the Gold Nugget Triathlon, and a member of the Anchorage Triathlon Club.

Alaska's Superior Courts are trial courts for both civil and criminal cases. They also serve as appellate courts for cases from the district courts and some administrative agencies. Superior Courts hear cases involving children, domestic relations and property matters.
