Defenders apply for COA position

Here is the news release announcing the candidates who have applied for the COA vacancy created by the recent death of Hon. Jerry G. Elliott. As you can see, the list includes Randall Hodgkinson (of this blog) and Michael Whalen, both criminal defense attorneys who have experience in the appellate courts.

Anyone that has input on the qualifications of any of the applicants should write the Supreme Court Nominating Commission at: Anne E. Burke, c/o Carol G. Green, Clerk of the Appellate Courts, 301 S.W. 10th Avenue, Topeka, Kansas. The Nominating Commission will conduct interviews with the applicants May 27-28, so be sure to get your letters in asap.

Here is a Topeka Capital-Journal article on the subject. Here is an article from the Lawrence Journal-World on the subject.

[Update: here is the Nominating Commissions' press release announcing the short list.]
