PHOENIX (AP) - A state commission has nominated four Maricopa County Superior Court judges and a lawyer for a Phoenix law firm to fill a vacancy on the Arizona Court of Appeals.

The Commission on Appellate Court Appointments recommended Judges James P. Beene, Paul J. McMurdie, Timothy J. Thomason and Randall H. Warner and attorney Timothy R. Hyland of The Cavanagh Law Firm.

Beene, McMurdie and Thomason are Republicans. Hyland and Warner are Democrats. The appointment will be made by Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican.

The Court of Appeals opening was created by the retirement of Judge John Gemmill (GEM’-mill).

The opening is on the court’s Phoenix-based division, which hears appeals from Apache, Coconino, La Paz, Maricopa, Mohave, Navajo, Yavapai and Yuma counties.
