11 Seek Seat On Montgomery Co. Circuit Court

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Eleven people are applying for an open seat on the Montgomery County Circuit Court.

Among those applying are four judges and six lawyers. The vacancy was created by the retirement of Judge Durke G. Thompson.

The Daily Record of Baltimore reports a judicial nominating commission will interview the candidates. The commission will then meet on Sept. 27 to decide which names to forward to Gov. Martin O’Malley. The governor traditionally
appoints a judge from the commission’s list.
