First Appellate District Judicial Nominating Commission: The Florida Bar is accepting applications for two lawyer vacancies on the First DCA Judicial Nominating Commission. By letter of April 11, 2013, the Governor rejected The Florida Bar’s list of nominees for two seats on the First District Court of Appeal Judicial Nominating Commission pursuant to Section 43.29(1)(a), Florida Statutes. Accordingly, The Florida Bar must submit two lists of three different nominees to the Governor for appointment. The terms commence immediately upon appointment with ending dates of June 2014 and 2016.
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 2 years following completion of their 4-year term.
Applications must be received by mail, e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org or fax, (850) 561-9405 no later than 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 7, 2013, in the Executive Director’s office of The Florida Bar. Resumes will not be accepted in lieu of an application. Screening committee members of the Board of Governors will review the applications.
