President Judge Muroski Asks That Ciavarella's Seat Be Placed on May Ballot

The Times Leader is reporting that President Judge Chester Muroski has asked Governor Ed Rendell to take whatever steps are necessary to place former Judge Mark Ciavarella's seat on the May ballot.

In a letter to Rendell dated Friday, Muroski says the county court system faces a "tremendous challenge" in staying current with cases given the Supreme Court's ruling last week that prevents former judge Ann Lokuta's seat from being placed on the ballot pending resolution of her appeal of the ruling that removed her from office. That decision means the 17 candidates who filed for judge are vying for two, instead of three seats.
