Blunt Promises Thorough Review of SupCo Finalists

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Governor Blunt says he'll conduct an
``exhaustive'' review of the three finalists for his first appointment to the Missouri Supreme Court.

In a written statement, Blunt said today that selecting a new member of the high court is not something to be done in haste. A judicial committee picked Nannette Baker of St. Louis, Patricia Breckenridge of Nevada, and Ronald Holliger of Blue Springs from a field of 30 applicants. The judge chosen will replace Judge Ronnie White, who resigned July sixth to join a law firm in St. Louis.

Blunt must choose from the list the panel submitted. If he makes no selection within 60 days, the panel would select the new judge.
