PHOENIX (AP) - State court officials are accepting applications for a vacancy on the Court of Appeals division that serves southern Arizona.

A state commission will review applications for the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Virginia Kelly and then recommend at least three nominees to Gov. Doug Ducey.

Ducey then will select one of the nominees to fill the vacancy.

The Court of Appeals’ Tucson-based Division Two is responsible for cases from Cochise, Gila, Graham, Greenlee, Pima, Pinal, and Santa Cruz counties.

July 2 is the deadline to submit applications to the Administrative Office of the Courts.

Applicants must be residents at least 30 years old, admitted to practice law in Arizona and also must have resided in Pima County for the past three years.


This story has been corrected to show the last name of the retired judge is Kelly, not Kelley.
