until Early 1980 the vacancy left by Justice Thomas Pomeroy or who resigned in november when he reached the mandatory retirement age of 70 Over a year before his term was to expire because Kauffman now is running inthe May 15 primary to permanently fill Pomeroy vacancy Zemprelli said he believed Thornburgh should not have picked him for the interim Post if confirmed by the Senate Kauffman would be too Busy campaigning to help reduce the courts huge Case backlog Zemprelli charged if the governor is serious about the backlog let him appoint a retired judge or somebody who going to have time to address the backlog Zemprelli said Hager claimed that the Democrat were stalling on Kauffman nomination because they did not want him to have an advantage of being an interim member of the court should he win the primary and Campaign against a Democrat for the Pomeroy vacancy for some reason the democrats think its some great advantage for Kauff Man to be an incumbent going into the primary

vote on the floor of the Senate perhaps As Early As this week Hager said the Outlook was dim Zemprelli said at most seven democrats would sup port Kauffman and an aide later said that number drop Ped to five he needs at least 12 however Charger said the parliamentary move would live Kauffman the gop endorsed candidate in the primary election a healthy dose of valuable publicity right before voters
