Judicial Circuit Court Nominating Commission.

jncFlorida Governor Rick Scott appointed Attorney Aaron O’Brien to a seat on the Twentieth Judicial Circuit Court Nominating Commission.

Lee County, Collier County, Hendry County, Charlotte County and Glades County make up the five counties contained within the Twentieth Judicial Circuit.

Whenever there is a judge who retires or resigns or a judicial vacancy occurs on a county or circuit court, the Governor has the authority to appoint a new judge.

The members of the JNC investigate each person who applies to be judge. The JNC then conducts interviews and votes on 3-6 applicants to recommend to the Governor for the appointment.

The Governor then makes his (or her) choice from the 3-6 names that the Judicial Nominating Commission provides.

To be appointed to such an important position within the judicial system is a tremendous honor for Attorney Aaron O’Brien.
