Nick Reisman is reporting for State of Politics the state Commission on Judicial Nomination last week submitted seven candidates for Gov.

Potential top judges for the New York Court of Appeals include a sitting member of that court, Associate Judge Anthony Cannataro. Additional nominees include Yale Law School Professor Abbe Gluck, Appellate Division President Justice Hector LaSalle, Albany Law School Dean Alicia Ouellette [w-uh -L EH T], Deputy Chief Administrative Judge for Justice Initiatives Edwina G. Richardson-Mendelson, Associate Justice of the Appellate Division Jeffry Oing [Oi-ng] and Corey L. Stoughton, the attorney-in-charge at The Legal Aid Society. The commission is a body composed of panelists appointed by the governor, legislative leaders in the state Senate and Assembly and the chief judge. E. Leo Milonas, the commission chairman, said. "That so many exceptional candidates were motivated to apply demonstrates the remarkable strength and depth of the legal profession in the state of New York." Chief Judge Janet DiFiore stepped down in August after six years on the job. The chief judge of the Court of Appeals is appointed to serve a 14-year term.
