LOUISVILLE (AP) -- Kentucky's first black Supreme Court justice has lung cancer that has spread to his brain.

Judge William McAnulty will undergo surgery next week to remove a one-inch segment of his brain. McAnulty said the cancer came from years of smoking, a habit he kicked in December.

The judge joked he's just worried the surgery might make him a UK fan.

McAnulty says he's expects to be out several months, but will read briefs and watch videotapes of oral arguments. He will also cast votes in cases and write opinions while he recovers.

McAnulty was appointed to the court last year by Governor Fletcher, then was elected to a full eight-year term on the court last November.
