Ohio: Replacing Justice Evelyn Lundberg Stratton (editorial)

Former Senior Director

Following Justice Evelyn Lundberg Stratton’s announcement that she will retire in December with two years remaining in her term, the editorial board of the Cleveland Plain Dealer called for Governor Kasich to use a committee to screen and recommend qualified candidates for appointment to her seat. Such committees are used to fill mid-term vacancies in eleven states that elect their judges.
