HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) (WTAJ) — Six sitting judges and two lawyers are hoping Pennsylvania voters this fall will issue a favorable verdict of their own and elevate them to one of the four state appeals court seats.
The vacancies that are up for grabs in the November election include a seat on the state Supreme Court, where Justice Thomas Saylor is retiring.
There is also an opening on Superior Court and two on Commonwealth Court. A publicly streamed virtual forum for the judicial races is planned for late September.
It’s being sponsored by Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts and the Free Library of Philadelphia.
