Berlinberg appoints three new associate justices to ASCSU Supreme Court

After interviewing 19 candidates for the position, Associated Students of ASCSU President Eric Berlinberg announced Monday that he has appointed three new associate justices to the student government Supreme Court, pending senate ratification.

The new justices are: Chelsea Stigall, a junior economics major, Kelsey Hall, a sophomore political science and international studies double major and Sofiya Kostareva, a freshman economics major.

“The interview process was extremely tough to decide, but ultimately the above three individuals will prove to add unique, differing perspectives to the ASCSU Supreme Court, and I look forward to the year to come,” Berlinberg said in an email.

The three nominees will be up for ratification at ASCSU Senate this Wednesday.
