Governor selects Gants as next Chief Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court

Earlier today Governor Deval L. Patrick announced his selection of Supreme Judicial Court Justice Ralph D. Gants to be the next chief justice of the SJC upon the retirement of current SJC Chief Justice Roderick L. Ireland.

"Justice Gants has worked his way up from the trenches of law practice and has the strong intellectual firepower to boldly lead the court," said MBA Chief Legal Counsel and Chief Operating Officer Martin W. Healy. "The people of Massachusetts, as well as the administration of justice, will be equally well served by his appointment."
