Two Superior Court Judges Nominated For Appellate Posts

Eliot Prescott would fill the Appellate Court vacancy created when now-Justice Richard A. Robinson was appointed to the state Supreme Court late last year. And Raheem Mullins would move into the spot created by the departure of Judge Stuart Bear, who will reach the state's mandatory judicial retirement age on May 6.

    It is interesting that you include the age issue. We need to balance out the diversity of the benches from decades of under representation. Whether Judge Robinson or Judge Mullins were the first young attorneys appointed or last; we are still way behind other jurisdictions in fixing decades of unfair play in the judicial system and number of women and minority judges. So this is a good day for our system and kudos to Gov. Malloy for his continual efforts to level out the playing field.

    JL.
