This nation's first Supreme Court was an appointed court. President George Washington selected John Jay of New York as its first chief justice and, as his associates, John Blair of Virginia, William Cushing of Massachusetts, James Wilson of Pennsylvania, James Iredell of North Carolina, and John Rutledge of South Carolina. That first panel, established by Congress in 1789, set the standard not only for its successors, but for each state supreme court as it was created. There have been many honorable courts along the way, and many distinguished justices.

A Commonwealth Court judge granted a request Friday that she privately review 477 e-mails from the NCAA related to the Pennsylvania State University child-molestation scandal that the organization had argued were protected internal communications. Judge Anne E. Covey ordered the NCAA to deliver the e-mails by noon next Friday for her to review as part of a lawsuit brought by State Sen. Jake Corman (R., Centre) over who would benefit from the $60 million fine the university agreed to pay to the NCAA.

Joseph A. Dewechter, a mail carrier in Gloucester City from the mid-1950s to the mid-1980s, "was an old-time carrier that everybody loved," said Joseph Townsend, a mailman there these days. "Joe never wore shorts," as is the style for many carriers. "He wore the long pants through the summer, winter. " And, Townsend said, Mr. Dewechter used an old leather bag, "the kind that went out with the horses. " Townsend laughed and added: "The last of the Mohicans. " On Tuesday, Nov. 4, Mr. Dewechter, 89, of Gloucester City, died of cardiac arrest at Cooper University Hospital in Camden.

In the chaotic aftermath of Jerry Sandusky's 2012 arrest on child-molestation charges, the NCAA apparently was so intent on punishing Pennsylvania State University that it overlooked questions about its authority to do so, according to e-mails from the organization made public Wednesday. "I know we are banking on the fact that the school is so embarrassed they will do anything, but I am not sure about that," Kevin Lennon, the NCAA vice president for academic and membership affairs, said in a July 2012 message to the NCAA's then-director of enforcement, Julie Roe Lach.

Pennsylvania's chief justice on Wednesday endorsed the recommendation of a group of defense lawyers and others that Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane release all e-mail traffic between the state Supreme Court and prosecutors, not just messages with sexually explicit material. Chief Justice Ronald D. Castille said this would address concerns that members of his court might have grown too close to prosecutors, swapping e-mails in a camaraderie that shut out others. "I think the attorney general should release all of them," Castille said.

  Hundreds of mail-in ballots challenged by Republicans in New Jersey's hotly contested Third Congressional District race will be counted, two judges ruled Tuesday afternoon. Burlington County Superior Court Judges John E. Harrington and Mark P. Tarantino ruled that the ballots will be open and counted but kept separated in case there is an appeal, said Joseph P. Dugan, the chair of the Burlington County Board of Elections. Dugan, a Democrat, sided with the other Democratic board member, Alice Furia, in defending the ballots for which the Democrat state committee had helped voters apply.

WASHINGTON - Hundreds of South Jersey Democrats' votes in the most hotly contested congressional district in the region could be invalidated after Republicans challenged a swath of mail-in ballots. In a filing Friday, the Burlington County Republican committee challenged the ballots because the Democratic state committee left out required information when sending mail ballot applications to their supporters in a U.S. House race between the GOP's Tom MacArthur and Democrat Aimee Belgard.

The 182 students whose ACT exams, taken at Upper Darby High School, were apparently lost in the mail will get a second chance to prove themselves. ACT Inc. will allow the students a free retest Nov. 1, this time at Penn Wood High School in Lansdowne. All 182 students also will receive a refund for the tests that were lost, Ed Colby, a spokesman for the Iowa-based testing company, said Thursday. Colby said ACT continues to look for the exams, supposedly mailed Sept. 15 by an ACT-hired testing coordinator.

HARRISBURG - The Pennsylvania Supreme Court suspended Justice Seamus P. McCaffery on Monday amid allegations that he sent pornographic e-mails and threatened to entangle a fellow justice in the widening scandal after vowing not to go "down alone. " In a sharply worded order, four of the seven justices, citing an "immediate need" to protect the integrity of the state's courts, suspended McCaffery with pay on "an interim basis" from his $200,205-a-year job. The court also ordered the state's Judicial Conduct Board to determine within 30 days if there is probable cause to file formal misconduct charges against the justice.
