The New York State Commission on Judicial Nomination announced Monday that it has extended the deadline for submitting applications for the upcoming vacancy on the Court of Appeals.
Senior Associate Judge Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick is retiring effective Jan. 1. Applications must be submitted to the commission no later than Aug. 15. The extension is intended to ensure that the size and composition of the pool of applicants for the state’s highest court represents the broadest possible spectrum of qualified candidates.
Applications may be downloaded from the commission’s website, www.nysegov.com/cjn/, or obtained by contacting Stephen P. Younger, counsel to the Commission, at the commission office, 1133 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10036-6710. Younger may also be contacted at (212) 336-2685; by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax at (212) 336-2222.
Those interested persons are urged to contact Younger as soon as possible.
