A new judge

We havent had a new Circuit Court judge since I interned with Senator Couric in 1998 when Judge Hogshire was chosen. The announcement that Cheryl Higgins has been chosen by the committee renews some faith I have in the judicial nominating process and selection. I don't know her personally, but the folks I have discussed the process with are confident of her abilities and temperament. I dont practice too much in Circuit Court either but it is important to have a judge who will not be a lightening rod in the community. I wish the soon to be Honorable Cheryl Higgins well.

It is really cool to have a woman appointed as a Circuit Court judge.

Don't you watch TV? All judges are no-nonsense black women!
