I heard rumors about this floating around on election night and I just saw that Hannah confirmed it: Strickland will get to appoint O’Connor’s replacement when she takes over as chief justice on January first.
Since Strickland will be Governor until January 10th, he’ll still be in power when the vacancy opens up and therefore will be able to fill it.
Anyone think he’ll choose Eric Brown again? Cordray?
I’d love to see him appoint Kent Markus just to piss off the right wing bloggers.
