Elizabeth Holtzman supports Governor Paterson for criticizing a nominating commission that did not include any women on its seven-person list of possible candidates for chief judge of the Court of Appeals. State law requires the governor to choose a chief judge from among those nominated by the commission, and the governor -- and Liz -- expressed dismay that the commission did not include any women.
