The Florida Bar is accepting applications for one lawyer vacancy on the Ninth Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission.
By letter of September 12, the governor rejected The Florida Bar’s list of nominees for one seat on the Ninth Circuit JNC, pursuant to F.S. §43.29(1)(a). Accordingly, The Florida Bar must submit a list of three different nominees to the governor for appointment. The appointee will serve the remainder of a four-year term, commencing immediately upon appointment and ending June 30, 2014.
Applicants must be engaged in the practice of law and a resident of the territorial jurisdiction served by the commission to which the member is applying. Applicants must comply with state financial disclosure laws. Commissioners are not eligible for state judicial office for vacancies filled by the JNC on which they sit for two years following completion of their term.
Persons interested in applying for this vacancy may download the proper application form (there is a specific JNC application) from the Bar’s website, www.floridabar.org, or should call Bar headquarters at (850) 561-5757 to obtain the application.
Applications must be received by mail, email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or fax to (850) 561-9405 no later than 5:30 p.m., October 7, in the executive director’s office of The Florida Bar. Resumes will not be accepted in lieu of an application.
