AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Gov. Paul LePage says he’s looking for applications for an anticipated vacancy on Maine’s supreme court.

Supreme Judicial Court Justice Jon Levy is awaiting U.S. Senate confirmation to the federal bench. Last week, his nomination cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee.

LePage said he’s looking forward to finding a candidate “of the highest ethical, legal and intellectual caliber.”

The governor’s judicial selection committee is seeking additional candidates and will accept applications until Feb. 15.
