Judicial Nominating Commission sends three candidates for NM Court of Appeals to Governor Martinez

Yesterday the New Mexico Judicial Nominating Commission met in Santa Fe to interview seven applicants for the New Mexico Court of Appeals seat being vacated by Chief Judge Celia Foy Castillo. The Commission voted to send the following three candidates to Governor Susana Martinez:

1. Judge Miles Hanisee, who presently sits on the Court of Appeals, but whose seat will soon be taken by Judge Monica Zamora, who prevailed in last month’s election.

2. Chief Judge Judith Nakamura of the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court.

3. Arthur Pepin, Director of the New Mexico Administrative Office of the Courts.

Governor Martinez will have until January 3 to name one of these three to the open seat.
