Non-lawyer is sought for judicial panel

(ran W edition)

The Judicial Nominating Commission for the 6th Judicial Circuit is seeking a non-lawyer to fill the four-year term as lay member of the commission.

Applications can be obtained from JNC Chair, Irene H. Sullivan, Harris, Barrett, Mann & Dew, 150 Second Ave. N, Suite 1500, St. Petersburg, FL 33701, 892-3100. Completed applications must be returned by Nov. 1.

Interviews will be scheduled shortly thereafter.

A judicial nominating commission screens applicants for judicial vacancies and submits at least three of the most qualified applicants to the governor. The governor must select one of the applicants whom the commission submits.

It is a non-salaried position; however, travel and per diem expenses incurred in filling a judicial vacancy are reimbursable by the State Courts Administrator's Office.

Each commissioner is appointed to a four-year term unless the appointment is to complete an unexpired term.
