The Florida Federal Judicial Nominating Commission is accepting applications for a United States District Judge position in the Middle District of Florida an area including Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater, where your favorite Criminal Attorney presides over his golden retriever, Sancho and an occasional glass or more of red wine. Here is an interesting list of the folks who interviewed for the last Federal District Court vacancy. Will they still be interested?
The oldest sitting Federal Judge is Judge Wesley Brown of Kansas whose one caveat is “no lengthy trials” which makes sense at age 103 and if your favorite Pinellas crime lawyer was that old he’d be avoiding lengthy trials too…
Anyway, applications for the judicial appointment can be obtained from the Florida Bar Online or at any Costco with a $50 membership fee. Completed applications must be received by the Commission’s Statewide Chair and each Commission member in the manner specified by the Rules of Procedure by 5 p.m., Wednesday, January 18, 2012.
