Last week, Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy (D) nominated former state senate Judiciary Chair Andrew McDonald for a seat on the Connecticut Supreme Court. If confirmed, McDonald will be the first openly gay member of Connecticut’s highest court. As a state lawmaker, McDonald was a leading proponent of marriage equality, and a backer of an earlier law providing for civil unions in Connecticut. McDonald stepped down from his seat in the state senate to become Malloy’s top legal advisor.
