New applications are sought for one lawyer vacancy on the 8th Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission. By letter of May 30, 2013, the Governor rejected The Florida Bar’s list of nominees for the 8th Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission pursuant to Section 43.29(1)(a), Florida Statutes. Accordingly, The Florida Bar must submit a new list of three different nominees to the Governor.
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, or fax no later than 5:00 p.m., Friday, June 28, 2013 in the Executive Director’s Office of The Florida Bar. Resumes will not be accepted in lieu of an application. The Florida Bar Executive Committee will finalize the list of nominees and send to the Governor.
Persons interested in applying may download the proper application form (there is a specific JNC application) from the Bar’s Web site or call Bar headquarters at (850) 561-5757, to obtain the application. Completed applications must be received by the Executive Director, The Florida Bar, 651 E. Jefferson St., Tallahassee, FL 32399-2300, by the deadline of June 28, 2013.
