Judge Carmen Espinosa, a former FBI agent and federal prosecutor whose judicial career has been a string of firsts for Hispanics, was nominated today by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to the Connecticut Supreme Court.

Espinosa, 63, of Southington was the first Hispanic judge in Connecticut when appointed to the Superior Court by Gov. Lowell P. Weicker Jr. in 1992. Malloy named her to the Appellate Court in March 2011.

If confirmed by the General Assembly, she now will become the first to serve on the state’s highest court. Her nomination comes less than two weeks after Malloy nominated his general counsel, Andrew McDonald, to the court.

“It can’t go without saying she is a trail blazer,” Malloy said, introducing her as his nominee in the Old Judiciary Room of the State Capitol.
