This week the Judiciary Committee voted unanimously to recommend the reappoint of the Honorable Leigh Ingalls Saufley to a third term on the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. She was first nominated to the SJC in 1997 by Gov. Angus King, an Independent. She was confirmed as Chief Justice in 2001 (the first female CJ), and reappointed in 2009 by Governor Baldacci, a Democrat. She has now been nominated for reappointment by Governor Le Page, a Republican.
If only it were this easy with the Supreme Court in Washington.
