Kansas Defender applies for COA
Here is a Topeka Capital-Journal article stating that 17 Kansas lawyers have applied for the Court of Appeals position that will be created by the Jan. 10 retirement of Chief Judge Gary W. Rulon. As the article states, Randall Hodgkinson (of this blog) is one of the attorneys applying for the position.
The Supreme Court Nominating Commission will meet Nov. 11-12 to interview the candidates and narrow the field to three. Anyone with input on the candidates should contact the commission as soon as possible. Comments can be sent to Anne E. Burke, c/o Carol G. Green, Clerk of the Appellate Courts, 301 SW 10th Avenue, Topeka, Kansas, 66612.
[Update: here is the short list (not including Randall).
