Gov. Bush makes more JNC appointments

first_img Gov. Bush makes more JNC appointments September 1, 2001 Regular News Gov. Jeb Bush has named members to all but two of the state’s judicial nominating commissions under a new state law that gives him great control over the panels that screen applicants for judgeships. Under the new law, the governor must fill six vacancies on each of the state’s 26 JNCs. Five of those people, two of whom must be lawyers, are directly appointed by Bush, while the sixth must be from a list of three applicants forwarded by The Florida Bar. The governor, however, can reject a Bar list as many times as he wants, although he has not done so under the new law. In late July, Bush named members to the Second District Court of Appeal and 11 th, 13 th, and 15 th c ircuit JNCs (see the August 1 Bar News ), each of which had several vacancies pending. Early last month, his office announced the members of 20 more commissions. Still to be chosen at Bar News press time were members of the Supreme Court and 16 th C ircuit JNCs.

He appoints the remaining four members from a list of three nominees for each vacancy submitted by The Florida Bar. The three previous Bar appointees on each JNC were allowed to continue serving under the new bill, but all other JNC members were dismissed, giving Bush six appointments to each panel.
