Panel Names Three Finalists for Missouri Supreme Court
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - Three appeals court judges are picked as nominees to be the next judge on the Missouri Supreme Court. A special panel on Wednesday recommended Nannette Baker, a judge of the state Appeals Courts' Eastern District, along with Patricia Breckenridge and Ronald Holliger, both judges on the Appeals Courts' Western District. The Appellate Judicial Commission met privately Tuesday and Wednesday to conduct interviews of job applicants and narrow its list. The governor must choose from the list the panel submitted. If he makes no selection within 60 days, the panel would select the new judge.
