The list of nominees for the 14-year term released Thursday includes six state judges and one partner in a law firm. They are: Justice Richard Andrias of the Appellate Division in New York City; George Carpinello, a partner in an Albany law firm and a former professor at Albany Law School; Justice Steven W. Fischer of the Appellate Division in Queens; Justice Theodore T. Jones Jr. of the state Supreme Court in New York City; Justice Thomas E. Mercure of the Appellate Division in Albany; Judge Juanita Bing Newton of the state Court of Claims; and Justice James A. Yates of state Supreme Court in New York City.
