Applications are open for judicial vacancies in St. Louis County and in two Kansas City-area circuits.
The 21st Circuit Judicial Commission is accepting applications for two openings on the St. Louis County Circuit Court.
The commission said it plans to meet Feb. 27 and 28 to publicly interview candidates for an impending associate circuit judge vacancy. The commission on Dec. 20 nominated current Associate Circuit Judges John R. Lasater, Jeffrey P. Medler and Nicole S. Zellweger to fill the circuit judge vacancy created by Judge Renee Hardin-Tammons’ recent appointment to the Court of Appeals. Gov. Mike Parson has 60 days to name one of them to the circuit bench.
Simultaneously, the commission expects to fill the circuit judge vacancy created by the resignation of Judge William Corrigan Jr., who will be leaving the bench to serve as deputy attorney general.
Applications are due by Feb. 3. Applicants who previously applied for the Hardin-Tammons circuit judge vacancy may email a letter to the chairperson of the commission requesting their previous application be transferred to the current opening, and those who wish to be considered for both openings should send two letters, one for each opening.
In addition, the 16th Circuit Judicial Commission is accepting applications to succeed Jackson County Circuit Judge Patrick W. Campbell, who plans to retire effective Feb. 20.
Applications for the vacancy are due by Feb. 10. The commission expects to meet March 8 and 9 to conduct public interviews of the applicants and to select a panel of three nominees for the vacancy.
Also, the 6th Circuit Judicial Commission is seeking to fill the Platte County associate circuit judge vacancy that will be created by the retirement of Judge Dennis C. Eckold on April 1.
Applications are due by Feb. 23, and the commission expects to meet on March 13 to conduct public interviews of the applicants and to select a panel of three nominees for the vacancy.
