Governor Dannel P. Malloy is nominating Appellate Court Judge Carmen Espinosa to sit on the Connecticut Supreme Court. Malloy said Monday that Espinosa would be the first Hispanic to serve on both the Appellate and Supreme courts. She must be confirmed by the Legislature. Malloy said Espinosa has had an impressive career and is one of the state’s most respected jurists. She was first appointed to the superior court in 1992, and was named to the Appellate Court 21 months ago. Espinosa said she hopes her nomination will serve as an example to young Hispanic children that anything is possible if they stay in school.
