Valdosta - Governor Sonny Perdue is searching for candidates to fill the unexpired terms of two south Georgia Judges.

Under pressure from the Judicial Qualification Commission, Alapaha Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Brooks Blitch and Juvenile Court judge Berrien Sutton resigned effective June 30th.

Both faced misconduct charges from the JQC.

A notice has been sent out to members of the Bar Association and citizens in the Circuit about the open positions.

Anyone interested must submit their nominations to the Judicial Nomination Committee by May 27th.

The notice says:

You are invited to submit nominations for these positions. Members of the bar may submit their own name or names of others. The public is also invited to submit nominations. Such names should be sent to me as Chair of the Commission by May 27, 2008.  (By letter addressed to 30 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd., NW, Suite 700,  Atlanta, GA 30308,  by Fax to 1-866-547-3433 or by e-mail c/o bwatson@balch.com).

To each person nominated, the Commission will send a questionnaire to be returned for receipt on or before June 6, 2008. The Commission will meet to interview applicants on June 11, 2008. All applicants will be notified of the time for their interview. Interviews will be held at the State Bar of Georgia, Atlanta office, 104 Marietta Street, NW, Atlanta, GA 30303.

The Commission will select and recommend to the Governor from among those persons found to be "qualified" or "well qualified" a short list of up to five persons for these positions. It is my understanding that the Governor may make both appointments from this list of recommended nominees.
