PHOENIX (AP) - A judge’s promotion has created a vacancy on the trial court for the state’s most populous county.

Gov. Doug Ducey created the vacancy when he appointed Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Paul McMurdie to the state Court of Appeals to fill an opening on that court’s Phoenix-based division.

A state commission will review applications for the Superior Court position, interview at least some of the applicants and recommend at least three nominees to Ducey, who will appoint McMurdie’s replacement.

Applicants must be at least 30 years old, admitted to practice law in Arizona, a resident of Arizona for the past five years, and a resident of Maricopa County for the past year.
