Thirty-five lawyers have applied for the position left by the retirement of Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Michael D. Jones.

The retirement of veteran Maricopa Superior Court Judge Michael D. Jones this year left a vacancy that's seen no shortage of applicants.

Thirty-five lawyers hope they'll be the one Governor Jan Brewer selects to fill the job opening for a new judge.

Before that crucial step, though, the Maricopa County Commission on Trial Court Appointments will weed the field following public testimony at the State Courts Building, 1501 W. Washington, Room 345, starting at 10 a.m. on March 1. The commission will choose a short list of applicants who'll be interviewed on March 28, and Brewer will select one of three finalists to emerge from that process.

The public is is invited to comment on the 35 wanna-be judges by sending e-mails to until February 27. The applicants' applications can be viewed online by clicking here.

The court won't consider anonymous comments. But here on Valley Fever, we can and do. So feel free to let everyone know if you know any of these folks and what you think of their potential as primo robe-wearer.

Actually, one has to thank the operators of the Phoenix new times for their abuse of journalism as a political attack tool.

Personal attacks in the media, through the courts, thuggery and violence have been trademarks of marxist anarchists for decades.

Decent people really need to know how this sort of thing works.

Conservatives are in the process of shedding the warm blanket of decent behaviour and compliance with the rules at all costs. It shouldn't be long before there is a conservative version of the new times along with new times advocates.


 Since when has the Truth been considered an abuse of journalism?  Maybe for Binthere222, "Pravda" is the type of journalism he would be comfortable with.
