Next SUPCO chief justice?I

It’s interesting that some news media speculate that that the governor could fill the bench of the late Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Tom Moyer with:

Nancy Rogers, who is the former Ohio U Law School dean and former interim Ohio attorney general.

Or with Franklin County Probate Court Judge Eric Brown, who is running for chief justice.

Both have strong Northeast Ohio connections.

Prior to her college role, Rogers was a law clerk for U.S. District Judge Thomas D. Lambros in Cleveland. She also practiced in the Glenville-area office of the Cleveland Legal Aid Society.

Before moving to Columbus, Brown was a 14-year member of the Mayfield School Board in eastern Cuyahoga County.

No assumptions here on who might be the chief justice.
