HRC Statement on Today's Vote for Chief Justice to Connecticut Supreme Court

The Connecticut House of Representatives has approved Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy's nominee to be Connecticut's next chief justice by a one-vote margin.

The nomination of Connecticut Supreme Court Justice Andrew McDonald to become the court's chief justice has cleared the first step in a two-step process in the House of Representatives.

A handful of Democrats and almost every Republican opposed McDonald, one of the most politically charged judicial nominees in recent memory. Following a 13 hour-long hearing and a tie vote along party lines last month, McDonald's nomination was sent to the Connecticut General Assembly.

McDonald's nomination is now in the hands of the State Senate, which is evenly divided 18-18 between Democrats and Republicans. It has become one of the most politically charged judicial nominations in recent memory, complete with robocalls and TV ads. And on the State Supreme Court, McDonald had voted to repeal capital punishment in CT.

Veteran Republican Rep. Arthur O'Neill said he couldn't recall a time when the House has overturned an unfavorable recommendation of a nominee by the Judiciary Committee. If confirmed, he would make history as the first openly LGBTQ Chief Justice on a USA state Supreme Court.

Republicans and conservative groups have accused McDonald of legislating from the bench, a claim he and his supporters deny.
