Panem Senate unanimously confirms Justice Francine Ashland Brewster as Chief Justice

The Panem Senate today voted unanimously to confirm the nomination of Associate Justice Francine Ashland Brewster for the position of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Panem.

The nomination, made by President Peeta Mellark on Tuesday, followed the announcement of outgoing Chief Justice Sean Wheeler’s retirement. Through nominating Brewster, the President provided the Supreme Court its first female Chief Justice, a major Justice Francine Ashland Brewsterdevelopment for a Court that is decidedly male. Brewster was, as the President put it, “the only candidate, in my mind, for this position.” Brewster will be sworn in by her predecessor, Sean Wheeler, later today.
