Appellate Court nominees named

After hours of public interviews, deliberations and voting, the Appellate Judicial Commission of Missouri has endorsed three nominees for a vacant position on the Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District. The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that two St. Louis-area attorneys and one St. Louis judge are the nominees.  St. Louis Circuit Judge Michael P. David and attorneys James Dowd of Webster Groves and Philip Hess of Sunset Hills are vying to fill the vacancy left by the retirement of Kathianne Knaup Crane. Crane stepped away in August after serving for 23 years on the Court of Appeals. Governor Nixon has 60 days to select one member of the panel to fill the vacancy. Should he fail to do so, the Missouri Constitution directs the Appellate Judicial Commission to make the appointment.
