A More Diverse State Judiciary

Mark Pazniokas, over at The CT Mirror, has this interesting article today on Governor Malloy’s successful efforts to increase the diversity of the state judiciary.  Paz writes, “Thirty percent of the 47 judges Malloy has nominated to the Superior Court since taking office in 2011 have been minorities, twice the percentage of those named by his immediate predecessors, Rell and Rowland. . . .  Of his 47 nominees for the trial bench, Malloy has picked 14 minorities: two Asians, nine African-Americans and three Hispanics. Nineteen, or 40 percent, have been women, who now comprise 35 percent of the trial bench.”
