Confirmation hearing on ICA nominee Katherine Leonard
Believe it or not, there will be a third special session of 2007 (the first was the override session in July, the second was this past October). For the third S.S., however, it is just the Senate calling itself back in to take care of one confirmation. The House is not involved. The Senate has posted a Notice of Hearing for the confirmation of Katherine G. Leonard to the Intermediate Court of Appeals, as an associate judge for a term of 10 years. The hearing will take place before the Senate Committee on Judiciary and Labor, chaired by Senator Brian Taniguchi. During the recent special session, the Senate failed to confirm the governor's former nominee Randal Lee. The hearing is scheduled for Friday, November 16, 2007, starting at 9:00 a.m. in Room 229 of the State Capitol.
