Judicial Selections - Today's the day

As we've discussed in many posts, the judicial selection process is sometimes controversial, but always interesting. Today, the General Assembly should announce the selections to fill various vacancies for state court judgeships. However, one candidate seems to be in serious trouble for reappointment. Circuit Court Judge Dean W. Sword Jr.'s "reappointment was attacked by five attorneys from Portsmouth and Norfolk, including two delegates, at a joint House-Senate Courts of Justice judicial panel meeting." His "interview" last over two and a half hours. That can't be good news for him.
