In Massachusetts, the Governor Deval Patrick nominated Barbara A. Lenk, openly lesbian, at the Supreme Judicial Court of the state.

 

If this nomination is confirmed, Barbara A. Lenk will become the first lesbian member of the Massachusetts high court.

“It’s a nice coincidence and a happy one,’’ Patrick said of Lenk’s potential to make history. “I love the idea of firsts, as you know, and I’m proud of this one. But first and foremost, this is a very well prepared and highly qualified candidate."

Lenk's desire is to “bring with me the sympathy and understanding of one who’s experienced a full life, from inside and outside the mainstream.’’

“As a judge, my only allegiance is to the rule of law and to fair and equal treatment of all who come before the court,’’ she said.
