"She’s been a judge on the court of appeals. She was appointed to that position and elected soon after that. She has appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court with Ted Olsen and Ken Starr arguing vouchers. She did very very well with that. She was also a travelling but sitting judge on the Ohio Supreme Court for some of the cases. And it was also important that we pick somebody who, in many ways, would kind of be in the same mold as Judge Stratton." 

Former Ohio Gov. Bob Taft appointed French to the Franklin County appeals bench in 2004. Before that, she had been his chief counsel and had worked for then-Ohio Attorney General Betty Montgomery.
