Women in the Judiciary

Two stories today regarding women in the judiciary.

The election of Judge Donna McDaniel as the first president judge in Allegheny.
From the Pittsburg Tribune Review:
"Allegheny County judges elected their first female president judge Friday by the slimmest of margins -- one vote. McDaniel will serve a five-year term as head of the county court, which has been in existence for about 200 years."

And the appointment of Justice Virginia Bell of the NSW Supreme Court, to the High Court of Australia.
From The Age:
"Justice Bell will become the fourth woman to serve in the court and the third woman on the current court, joining Justice Susan Crennan and Justice Susan Kiefel."
