Hub Police Hit Court Nominees;
Two of 29 Are HLS Teachers

By Gary L. Rubin
Amid considerable fanfare and
official ballyhoo, Governor Fran-
cis W. Sargent has nominated
29 men and women - including
two teachers at the Law School
- to fill some of the 38 judicial
vacancies created when voters
approved a constitutional amend-
ment requiring that state judges
be retired at the age of 70.
Among   the   nominees  are
Teaching Fellow John C. Crats-
ley and Lecturer David S. Nel-
son, and 11 graduates of the Law
School. The 29 nominations are

3L, filed their complaint on be-
half of the Women's Law Associa-
tion with the director of the Office
of Civil Rights in the Department
of Health, Education and Wel-
fare. That office is in charge of

Freund Defends Court Plan

By Daniel rM. Taubman
One month after a blue-ribbon
committee of law professors and
practicing lawyers recommended
the establishment of a National
Court of Appeals to ease the
mounting caseload of the Su-
preme Court, the group's chair-
man defended the proposals in the
face of mounting criticism.
In an exclusive interview with
the RECORD, committee chairman

and Loeb University Professor
Paul A. Freund noted that any
new departure is bound to pro-
duce initially some resistance. I
would hope that after more reflec-
tion people would come to agree
