Albany Times Union DENNIS YUSKO

Gov. Eliot Spitzer will make his first court appointment Sunday when he nominates an associate judge to the Court of Appeals.
Spitzer will hold a noon press conference in New York City to reveal his selection to succeed retired Judge Albert Rosenblatt on the state's highest court, the governor's spokeswoman, Christine Anderson, said in a press release.
Spitzer must make an appointment by Jan. 15.
The New York State Bar Association has deemed all seven candidates for the position to be well-qualified for the post.
The candidates are: Richard T. Andrias, associate justice of the Appellate Division, First Department; Juanita Bing Newton, deputy chief administrative judge for Justice Initiatives for the state Office of Court Administration and administrative judge for the criminal courts of New York City; Albany attorney George F. Carpinello, a partner in the firm of Boies, Schiller & Flexner; Steven W. Fisher, associate justice of the Appellate Division, Second Department; Theodore T. Jones Jr., administrative judge of state Supreme Court in Kings County; Thomas E. Mercure, associate justice of the Appellate Division, Third Department, in Albany; and James A.
