Republican Gov. Matt Blunt will choose from among three members of the Missouri Court of Appeals for his first appointment to the Missouri Supreme Court. The Appellate Judicial Commission selected the finalists from among 30 applicants to replace Ronnie White, who resigned from the court earlier this month to go into private practice.

The finalists are Judge Nannette Baker of the Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District and Western District Judges Patricia Breckenridge and Ronald Holliger. Baker and Holliger were both appointed to their current posts by Democratic governors while Breckenridge is a Republican appointee.

White was the first and only black member of the state high court. Baker is the lone African-American among the finalists. Blunt has 60 days to make his selection. If he fails to do so, the commission will make the appointment.
