PHOENIX (AP) - A state commission that recommends candidates for posts on the Court of Appeals and Supreme Court has thinned the ranks of potential Arizona Supreme Court nominees to nine.

The Commission on Appellate Court Appointments cut three candidates from the list of applicants to replace retiring Justice Rebecca White Berch on Monday. Cut was Navajo County Attorney Brad Carlyon, Litchfield Park mayor and private attorney Thomas Schoaf and Lake Havasu City private attorney Kenneth Moyer.

The commission will interview the remaining candidates on Nov. 20 and send at least three names to Gov. Doug Ducey. He’ll appoint the replacement for Berch.

All but two of the remaining candidates are superior or appeals court judges. Those two are Goldwater Institute attorney Clint Bolick and former Gila County Attorney Daisy Flores.
