Judge Downey withdraws nomination

After his nomination hearing was abruptly ended yesterday, Judge Downey today asked Governor Rell to withdraw his nomination to the Appellate Court. She issued the following press release:

Judge Downey has asked me to withdraw his nomination to be a Judge of the Appellate Court. I respect Judge Downey’s decision. I am sure it was a difficult one for him and his family.

I will be submitting a new nomination to the Judiciary Committee in the near future.

His withdrawal letter can be found here [pdf]. Who’s next?
