Good luck and serve the bench well. But why not fill the other positions? The courts are over loaded as is and every judge has a hugh case load to deal with. Is the money in the budget for these 15 openings? Is Malloy hoping to solve the debt issue by not filling these positions? Why is it the judicial division gets the least amount of funding, at the same time everyone blames the system for not moving cases along in a timely manner. Every lawyer will tell you this fact. Or is it he ran out of available democratcs to appoint?
