Nomination Time: Fourth District JNC Stays With Four

If you attended the Appellate Practice Section’s monthly CLE call this past Tuesday, you heard me give a presentation on the past year’s notable events from an appellate perspective. Among them was this item, which I will finally post here.

To fill the appellate vacancy created by Judge Farmer, the Fourth District Court of Appeal Judicial Nominating Commission met last year and, on November 2, nominated four trial judges for appointment to the Fourth District. The JNC’s letter, available here named the following:

Judge Peter D. Blanc
Judge Burton Conner
Judge Jack Schramm Cox
Judge Elizabeth T. Maass

Governor Crist could have made an appointment from that list, but he did not. After Governor Scott took office, he sent this letter to the JNC. The letter observed that the JNC had nominated only four persons and expressed the Governor’s strong preference that the maximum number of nominations be made for any judicial vacancy. The letter requested that the JNC reconvene and certify a list of six nominees.

The JNC met last Friday and afterward released this statement saying it has certified four nominees to the Governor. The same four.
