Abercrombie nominates Pollack for Supreme Court

HONOLULU (AP) - Gov. Neil Abercrombie has nominated Circuit Court Judge Richard Pollack to sit on Hawaii's top court.

Pollack has been a Circuit Court judge since 2000. He has also served as a substitute justice and substitute Intermediate Court of Appeals judge.

Abercrombie said Tuesday that he's confident the core values of the constitution and Hawaii are well met in the 61-year-old.

The governor selects state Supreme Court justice nominees from a list of names submitted by the Judicial Selection Commission. The nominations are subject to confirmation by the state Senate. Each justice is initially appointed for a 10-year term.

Pollack is an adjunct professor at the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaii.

He was the state public defender from 1987 to 2000.
