January 31 deadline for Middle District judgeships.

Congress recently passed legislation funding four new federal judges for the Middle District of Florida. Chief Judge Elizabeth Kovachevich has advised this legislation will result in a full-time district court judge for Ft. Myers and add one judge each for the federal courthouses in Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville.

The Federal Judicial Nominating Commission of Florida is now accepting applications for the four new judgeships. The new judges will be assigned within the Middle District to fill whatever vacancies may exist at the time of their confirmations by the United States Senate.

Applications may be obtained by faxing your request to the chairman of the commission, whose facsimile number, address and telephone number are listed below.

All applications must be completed and served on each member of the commission no later than January 31, 2000. Service is complete upon mailing. Address labels will be included with the application forms. The original of the application must be served upon Commission Chair Benjamin H. Hill III, P.O. Box 2231, Tampa 33601 (facsimile (813) 221-2900, telephone (813) 221-3900), with the following certificate of mailing:

I hereby certify that a copy of this application was mailed to each of the 39 members of the Federal Judicial Nominating Commission of Florida on this the _____ day of _____, 2000.
