District court judgeship in Albuquerque becoming vacant, commission accepting applications


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — An independent commission will meet later this month to recommend candidates to the governor for filling a vacant judgeship in Albuquerque.

The term of District Judge Kenneth H. Martinez expires at the end of the year. He didn't seek to be retained in the general election. He was appointed to the 2nd Judicial District judgeship in 2005 by then Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson.

Lawyers wanting to be considered by the nominating commission must submit applications by Nov. 24.

The panel will meet Dec. 9 in Albuquerque to interview applicants and recommend candidates for possible appointment by Republican Gov. Susana Martinez.
