We are members of Senator Kamala Harris’s Judicial Commission. We write on behalf of the Senator concerning a position on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. If you know of a candidate you believe would serve with distinction, please encourage him or her to submit an application. An application (the form designated for U.S. District Judge candidates should be used) and directions are available at this link: https://www.harris.
Although applications will be considered on a rolling basis, the Commission 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 March 7, 2018.
Please forward this e-mail to other leaders in the legal community whom you think may be helpful in locating qualified candidates. The Commission desires to consider a wide range of qualified candidates. We thank you in advance for your critical assistance to the process.
Brian Nelson and John Hueston
