Federal PD Murrell seeks reappointment

The four-year term of Randolph P. Murrell, federal public defender for the Northern District of Florida in Tallahassee, expires November 1.

In accordance with regulations of the Judicial Conference of the United States and the Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, a review committee has been established to evaluate Murrell’s performance in consideration of his request to be reappointed to a new four-year term. The committee is soliciting written comments about the performance of Murrell and his office staff. If requested, the identity of a respondent to this solicitation will not be divulged without prior consent. Murrell, however, will be provided with a general description of the source and nature of any comments.

Comments should be submitted to James P. Gerstenlauer, Circuit Executive, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, 56 Forsyth Street N.W., Atlanta, GA, 30303, and must be received no later than January 15.

Although Murrell does seek reappointment, there is no presumptive right to reappointment. Accordingly, the court is soliciting applications for this position. Applications are available at; from any federal clerk of court in the states of Alabama, Florida, and Georgia; and from the Circuit Executive James P. Gerstenlauer, 56 Forsyth Street N.W., Atlanta, GA, 30303. Applications should be submitted in confidence to the circuit executive no later than January 15.
