Extra innings at ICC

Thanks to tweets from our colleagues at AMICC, the American Non-Governmental Organizations Coalition for the International Criminal Court, learned that voting on the final 3 vacancies for ICC judgeships has gone 9 rounds without a decision.
Six candidates competed. The closest any came was 5 votes short -- that was Howard Morrison of Britain.
10th inning soon. Follow it at AMICC's Twitter feed here; in due course, someone's updating a WikiPedia table (left), which shows the contest in easy-to-read form, here.
(IntLawGrrls' posts on the 1st 2 elected are available here and here; the additional electee was Robert Fremr of the Czech Republic, chosen Tuesday, in the 2d round.)
