Thirteen apply for Ohio Supreme Court opening
Kasich will name the next justice within weeks.
by WKSU's STATEHOUSE CORRESPONDENT BILL COHEN


Reporter
Bill Cohen
 
In The Region:

Gov. John Kasich will soon be appointing justice to a temporary vacancy on the Ohio Supreme Court. And two people who are not interested are the the two incumbent justices who lost their elections two weeks ago.  Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen has details.

Justice Evelyn Stratton is retiring at the end of this year, about two years before her term expires. That puts Gov. Kasich in charge of naming the man or woman who will complete her term.

Two people who are available and have experience on the court are Justices Robert Cupp and Yvette McGee Brown. In a surprise turn, voters unseated both in the election earlier this month, and there was speculation that one or both would submit their names for the opening. Neither did.

But 13 others have put in for the slot, including Patrick Fisher, an appeals court judge and head of the board of governors of the Ohio State Bar Association. Four other state appeals court judges also have asked for the appointment.
