Jenks & Harvey LLP, is pleased to announce that Debra A. Jenks was reappointed by Florida Governor Rick Scott to the Judicial Nominating Commission for the Fourth District Court of Appeal. Debra will remain on the commission through July 2020.
Judicial Nominating Commissions (JNCs) select nominees to fill judicial vacancies within the Florida court system. There are twenty-seven separate JNCs: one for the Florida Supreme Court; five for each of the district courts of appeal or “appellate districts”; twenty for each circuit court and the county courts contained in that circuit; and one Statewide Commission for Judges of Compensation Claims. Commission members submit three to six names of the most highly qualified applicants to the governor, who makes the final selection from the list.
