PHOENIX (AP) - Five sitting judges are among six applicants being considered by a state panel for nomination to fill two Arizona Court of Appeals vacancies.

The Commission on Appellate Court Appointments will decide Jan. 23 which applicants to interview Feb. 21 and then nominate at least three nominees for each opening to Gov. Doug Ducey, who will appoint the new judges.

The applicants include Superior Court Judges Jennifer Campbell of Yavapai County, Mark Moran of Coconino County, Maria Elena Cruz of Yuma County and Rick Williams of Mohave County.

The other two applicants are Lake Havasu City lawyer Kenneth Moyer and A. Douglas LaSota, president magistrate of Cottonwood Municipal Court.

Judge Patricia Orozco’s retirement and the appointment of Judge Andrew W. Gould to the Arizona Supreme Court created the vacancies.
