FLORIDA SUPREME COURT JNC SEEKS APPLICANTS FOR FLORIDA SUPREME COURT JUSTICE
In order to clarify recently received questions, the Florida Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Commission is seeking qualified applicants to fill an At-Large seat.
The Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Commission is seeking qualified applicants to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Justice Alan Lawson effective Aug. 31, 2022.
The judicial application may be obtained from Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Judicial Nominations website. Applicants must submit: (1) an original electronic copy of the application (including all attachments) in pdf format; and (2) a redacted electronic copy of the application (including all attachments), which excludes all material that is exempt or confidential under applicable public records laws, also in pdf format. Both the original and redacted electronic applications must be submitted electronically to all Commission members at their email addresses below before 5 p.m. EDT on Friday, May 27, 2022. The Commission strongly prefers the submission of applications in a text-searchable (i.e., non-scanned) pdf format.
After the deadline for submitting applications, the Commission will determine which applicants to interview. Applicants who are selected by the Commission for interviews will be contacted to confirm the date, time, and location. It is anticipated that interviews take place Saturday, June 11, 2022 and, if needed, Sunday June 12, 2022 in Tampa, Florida.
