Governor Corbett Issues Statement On Resignation Of Justice Orie Melvin









HARRISBURG, Pa., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Tom Corbett today issued the following statement on receiving a letter of resignation from State Supreme Court Justice Joan Orie Melvin:

"I believe the decision by Justice Orie Melvin to resign is the correct one. This will save taxpayers the time and expense of impeachment proceedings in the House and Senate, and allow legislators to focus on other important issues.''

Corbett has 90 days from May 1, the date the vacancy occurs on the state Supreme Court, to submit a nominee to fill the vacancy. This nominee, upon confirmation by two-thirds of the Senate, will serve until Jan. 5, 2016. A successor will be elected in November 2015.

"I will submit a nominee to the Senate as soon as practical within that time frame to bring our Supreme Court back to its full complement of seven justices," Corbett said.
