Judicial Application Information
When there is a trial or appellate court vacancy, the official notice will be posted on this site.
Where there is a vacancy to be filled, the Judicial Nominating Commission reviews and recommends applicants for the governor’s consideration. The governor may then appoint one of the recommended applicants to fill the vacancy. For more information about the nomination process, please read the judicial application instructions.
