HARRISBURG — Gov. Ridge yesterday nominated Montgomery County lawyer Berle M. Schiller, who just completed an interim appointment to the state Superior Court, to fill another vacancy on the court.
Schiller, a close, longtime friend of Sen. Vincent J. Fumo (D., Phila.), last year ran unsuccessfully for a seat on the Supreme Court. His Superior Court term expired this month.
If confirmed by the Senate, Schiller, 53, would serve until January 2000. An election for a full, 10-year term would be held in November 1999.
