Patrick to nominate justice to Mass. high court

Headline Legal News Posted on

Gov. Deval Patrick is set to make his latest pick to the state’s highest court.

The governor has scheduled a Monday afternoon news conference at the Statehouse to nominate an associate justice to the Supreme Judicial Court. If confirmed, the person chosen would succeed Judith Cowin, who in January announced plans to retire after 11 years on the high court.

This will be the fourth associate justice that Patrick has selected to the SJC, meaning that he will now have personally selected a majority of the justices on the seven-member court, the oldest continuously serving court in the Western Hemisphere.

Patrick also elevated Roderick Ireland to chief justice of the SJC following the retirement last year of Margaret Marshall.
