Stevens Approved for PA Supreme Court Vacancy



Pennsylvania's Supreme Court got back up to full strength on Sunday with the unanimous confirmation in the state Senate of Correale Stevens as its newest justice.
 
The Senate voted 50-0 in favor of Stevens, a former state lawmaker who most recently has been president judge of Superior Court, a state appeals court.
He will assume the seat held most recently by Joan Orie Melvin, who resigned May 1 following her conviction on charges she used government employees to help her political campaigns.
 
Stevens, a Republican, returns the court to a 4-to-3 GOP majority. He will serve until January 2016, when a new justice, chosen by voters two months earlier, will assume the office on a permanent basis for a 10-year term.
