Lamont picks his general counsel to serve on Appellate Court

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Gov. Ned Lamont has nominated 16 people for state judge positions, including his general counsel for a spot on Connecticut's second-highest court. The Democratic governor on Wednesday picked his counsel, Robert Clark, to serve on the state Appellate Court. Clark would fill a vacancy created when Judge Douglas Lavine stepped down in December after reaching the mandatory retirement age of 70. Clark previously served as a Superior Court judge in Bridgeport and an assistant state attorney general. Lamont also nominated 15 people to serve as Superior Court judges, including three federal prosecutors.
