The Eleventh Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission has been asked to provide Gov. Rick Scott with nominees for the vacancy in the Miami-Dade County Court created by the death of County Court Judge Shelley J. Kravitz.
The Commission requests that interested candidates submit an application for consideration. Applicants must meet the qualifications for county court judges described in Article V, Section 8 of the Florida Constitution and Section 34.021 of the Florida Statutes.
Applicants must deliver a complete original application by Feb. 23, 2018, at 5 p.m. No copies shall be required. Any application delivered after the deadline will not be considered. Applications submitted for this vacancy and the vacancy created by the elevation of County Court Judge Spencer J. Multack will be reviewed at the same time. One application is sufficient for both vacancies. The original application should be delivered to: Hans Ottinot, Esq., City Attorney’s Office for the City of Sunny Isles Beach, 18070 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach, FL 33160.
In addition to the original application, applicants must email a PDF version of the application to Hans Ottinot, Esq., chair (firstname.lastname@example.org) with personal information not subject to public disclosure — such as the social security number — redacted as permitted by Section 119.071 of the Florida Statutes.
Applicants are invited to provide the chair with a one-page sheet listing the date, location and time of hearings or trials that they would want the Commissioners to observe. The one-page disclosure sheet is not mandatory and can be provided to the chair at any time before the interview day. No information other than the date, location and time should be provided on the one-page sheet.
Note to applicants: To assist the Judicial Nominating Commission in its review of applications, all questions must be fully and completely answered. Applications must include current contact information, including email addresses, for judges, co-counsel, opposing counsel, and references to facilitate the background investigation that will be conducted by the members of the Commission.
Members of the bench, the Bar, and the public are encouraged to contact the members of the Commission concerning applicants for judicial positions.
