GAB Nomination Panel Selected
Before oral arguments this morning, Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson of the Wisconsin Supreme Court selected, by random drawing, the four court of appeals judges who will sit on a committee to nominate the next member of the Government Accountability Board. The judges are:
- Judge Ralph Fine (District I)
- Judge Paul Reilly (District II)
- Judge Michael Hoover (District III)
- Judge Paul Lundsten (District IV)
This spring, those four judges will meet to review the applicants to fill the GAB seat of Judge Thomas Cane, whose five-year term will expire in May. The committee must forward at least two names to the governor, whose choice for the appointment must be confirmed by a two-thirds vote in the State Senate.
