Judicial Nominating Committee Searching for New Judge

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - Governor Rick Scott is looking for a replacement to fill former Judge William Wright's vacancy in the 14th Judicial Circuit.
 
A committee will review applicants and present their best few choices to Scott's office.
 
They are now accepting applications, which can be found on the governor's website, or the Florida bar's website.
 
Any attorney who has been part of the Florida bar for at least five years may apply.
 
When turning in your application, include the original, plus seven paper copies and an electronic copy on a CD.
 
The applications are due January 18th by 5:00 p.m. to the law office of Waylon Graham in Panama City.
 
Graham is the Chairman of the Judicial Nominating Committee.
 
"This may be the most important job that any lawyer can do and that is sit on this committee because what we're about to undertake is a very important task so we encourage everybody in the whole circuit that's interested and wants to do this to please do it and we encourage that because we want a lot of good applicants," said Waylon Graham, Chairman of Nominating Commission.
 
Graham says they must give their nominations to Governor Scott's Office by the end of February, but it could be months before Scott makes the final decision.
