A Temporary Attorney General in Ohio: Nancy Rogers

Gov. Ted Strickland has appointed Nancy Rogers, the dean of Ohio State University's Moritz School of Law, as the temporary attorney general, replacing Marc Dann, who resigned rather than be impeached.

From Rogers' bio:

Professor Rogers became Dean in August 2001, after serving for two years as Vice Provost for Academic Administration for The Ohio State University. She is the Immediate Past President of the Association of American Law Schools.

Professor Rogers received her bachelor's degree with highest distinction from the University of Kansas in 1969 and her law degree from Yale Law School in 1972. After law school, she served as a law clerk for U.S. District Judge Thomas D. Lambros in Cleveland and practiced law in the Glenville-area office of the Cleveland Legal Aid Society.

She was appointed to an endorsed professorship in 1995, and Rogers currently holds the Michael E. Moritz Chair in Alternative Dispute Resolution.

Rogers does not intend to run for the remainder of Dann's term, which voters will determine in November. The parties have until Aug. 20th to select their candidates. The Toledo Blade reports that Republicans are looking at an AG candidate as a way to repair the party's scandal-damaged reputation in the state.
