Governor Malloy announced today that he intends to nominate Associate Justice Andrew J. McDonald to serve as the next chief justice of the Connecticut Supreme Court, following Chief Justice Chase T. Rogers' retirement from the bench on February 5.

In light of this intended nomination, CBA President Karen DeMeola made the following statement,

Justice Andrew J. McDonald

"I am thrilled that Governor Malloy intends to nominate Justice Andrew McDonald as the next chief justice of the Connecticut Supreme Court. He is a brilliant, thoughtful jurist with tremendous experience on the bench and as a leader. Justice McDonald has dedicated his career to public service, championing social justice, and safeguarding fairness and equality."

Prior to becoming an associate justice for the Supreme Court in 2013, Justice McDonald served as the general counsel to the Office of the Governor of the State of Connecticut for two years, where he served as chief legal advisor to the governor, lieutenant governor, and senior staff of the executive branch of government.
