The 22nd Circuit Judicial Commission nominated John T. Bird, Nicole Colbert-Botchway and David A. Roither for a circuit judge vacancy on the St. Louis Circuit Court.
Gov. Mike Parson has 60 days to select one of the three to succeed Judge Thomas C. Clark II, who was recently appointed to the Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District.
Bird is an assistant U.S. attorney. Colbert-Botchway and Roither are associate circuit judges in St. Louis. The commission selected them unanimously from among 23 applicants after public hearings and interviews on April 15.
