InfoJustice Scott was elected in November 2004 to represent the 7th Supreme Court District, which consists of 22 counties in Eastern Kentucky. Effective July 1, 2006, Justice Scott replaced Justice Martin E. Johnstone (who retired June 30, 2006) as Deputy Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Chief Justice Joseph E. Lambert conducted the formal swearing-in ceremony for Deputy Chief Justice Scott on July 17, 2006.

He served as circuit judge from 1984 to 1988 and was elected second vice president of the Kentucky Circuit Judges Association in 1986. Before serving the judiciary, he practiced law as a trial attorney from 1975 to 1980 and as assistant commonwealth's attorney for Pike County from 1981 to 1982.
