Commission selects four applicants for NM Supreme Court

In my earlier post about this morning’s Judicial Nominating Commission meeting, I noted that I had to leave at lunch time, so I did not get to see who was selected, but according to this story by Scott Sandlin in the Albuquerque Journal, the Commission has forwarded the following names to Governor Martinez for her consideration:

1.  Judge Gary Clingman of the Fifth Judicial District Court.

2.  Judge Judith Nakamura of the Second Judicial District Court.

3.  Judge Linda Vanzi of the Court of Appeals.

4.  Chief Judge Michael Vigil of the Court of Appeals.

Governor Martinez will have 30 days to make her decision.

UPDATE (October 20, 2015): You can read an updated version of Scott Sandlin’s story at this link, which contains some detail about the Commission’s interviews with Judge Clingman and Judge Vanzi.
