Goldwater Institute's Clint Bolick At Top Of List For Arizona Supreme Court Justice Slot, Whether Alphabetically Or Gubernatorially

The Goldwater Institute's Clint Bolick is at the top of the list of nine candidates for an opening on the Arizona Supreme Court.  The Commission interviewing nine candidates listed them alphabetically, but Bolick also served Governor Doug Ducey during his transition earlier this year.

Here is the list from the Commission On Appellate Court Appointments. They failed to slot three applicants for interviews and consideration at their November 20 meeting:

Bolick was Ducey's choice to co-chair his transition committee to make sure "the federal government does not trample our state's rights". That is also one of the key goals of the conservative Goldwater Institute.

The Commission will forward at least three individuals' names to the Governor, and Ducey will appoint one to the vacancy created by Justice Rebecca White Berch's retirement.
