I am State Chair of Senator Dianne Feinstein’s Judicial Advisory Committee process. The chair of the Central Committee is Wylie Aitken. We write on behalf of the Senator concerning two positions on the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. One of those positions is in Riverside.
As you may know, Senator Feinstein has established a Judicial Advisory Committee in each federal district to review candidates for the position of U.S. District Court Judge. If you know of a candidate you believe would serve with distinction as a district judge, please encourage him or her to submit an application. These applications and directions are available at this link:
Although applications will be considered on a rolling basis, the Committee will be working to provide candidates to the Senator as soon as possible. Therefore, please encourage any candidate to submit his or her application by June 16, 2017.
Finally, please feel free to forward this e-mail to other leaders in the legal community whom you think may be helpful in locating qualified candidates. It is critical that the Committee have a wide range of qualified candidates to consider, and, as leaders in the California legal community, your participation in this process is invaluable.
David S. Casey, Jr.
