Attorneys and lower-court judges in Kansas have until November 14 to apply for a seat on the state Court of Appeals.
A statewide nominating commission is taking applications for the position formerly held by Chief Judge Richard Greene, who died last week.
The commission will interview the candidates and pick three finalists for Gov. Sam Brownback to consider. No dates for the interviews have been scheduled.
Commission members are also reviewing applications for the Court of Appeals seat that will become vacant in January, when Judge Christel Marquardt plans to retire.
The commission has received 21 applications for Marquardt's seat, including one from Caleb Stegall, the governor's chief counsel. Interviews with those applicants are scheduled for Nov. 13 and 14.
