A first in Spain

For the first time, a woman has been named to head a Spanish military court. Details here. Excerpt:

A woman will preside for the first time over a Spanish military court and will do so in Seville. Auditor colonel María Inmaculada Benavente Cózar was elected this Thursday by the Plenary of the General Council of the Judiciary as auditor president of the Second Territorial Military Court of Seville by obtaining 16 of the 21 possible votes, with the blank votes of the members Álvaro Cuesta, Concepción Sáez, Pilar Sepúlveda, Clara Martínez de Careaga and Rafael Mozo.

Judge Benavente has a most impressive record, according to this report.
