Brian Steele writes for Law360 that, “The General Assembly’s joint judiciary committee held a public hearing to consider Gov. Ned Lamont’s latest raft of 22 nominees for Connecticut Superior Court judgeships.”

“The CT Pro-People Judiciary Coalition submitted written testimony to the committee praising the diversity of professional experience among the nominees compared to prior selections. The coalition described itself as ‘a group of legal advocates, community organizations, racial justice groups, disability rights advocates, unions, and attorneys pushing for greater diversity on the Connecticut state bench.’

“The coalition did not take a position on individual nominees, but noted that the selections ‘represent a higher percentage of public interest and other pro-people backgrounds’ than the current bench.”
