I was pretty sure that Governor Patterson would have picked someone already on the Court of Appeals, if only to get another seat to fill. That would have made Judge Jones the likely favorite, a Democrat, and African-American. Instead we have Jonathan Lippman, who was said to be the candidate that Judge Kaye favored. The process that was involved meant that the Gov had only quality to pick from, so congratulations to Judge Lippman, if confirmed, the first chief judge not elevated from within the Court since Alton Parker in 1898.
