BOSTON, MA (STL.News) Governor Charlie Baker today nominated Associate Justice of the Appeals Court, Dalila Argaez Wendlandt, to serve as an Associate Justice on the Supreme Judicial Court.  The nominee and her family joined Governor Baker and Lt. Governor Karyn Polito for a formal announcement today at the State House.  If confirmed, Justice Wendlandt will be the first Hispanic person to join the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.

“Justice Dalila Argaez Wendlandt is an intelligent and hard-working jurist whose attitude and determination will serve her and all those that come before her on the Court well,” said Governor Baker.  “Her knowledge of the law and unique professional background will be a much needed asset to the Supreme Judicial Court and I look forward to her confirmation.”

“First as an engineer and then as an attorney, Justice Wendlandt has chosen careers where women are underrepresented and is a role model for women and girls across the Commonwealth,” said Lt. Governor Polito.  “She will bring a voice to the judiciary that we need now more than ever and I look forward to the consideration of the Governor’s Council in her appointment.”

The Supreme Judicial Court is the Commonwealth’s highest appellate court, consisting of the Chief Justice and six Associate Justices.  The seven Justices hear appeals on a broad range of criminal and civil cases from September through May and issue written opinions that are posted online.
