Gov. Tony Evers is seeking candidates for two expected vacancies in the Wisconsin Court of Appeals.
Evers is looking for candidates to fill an expected vacancy in the appeals court’s second district, a vacancy opened up by Judge Brian Hagedorn’s election to the Wisconsin Supreme Court in April. Hagedorn will take office on Aug. 1. Whoever is appointed as a replacement would serve out the rest of Hagedorn’s appellate term, which ends July 31, 2021.
District Two, which has headquarters in Waukesha, consists of Calumet, Fond du Lac, Green Lake, Kenosha, Manitowoc, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Walworth, Washington, Waukesha and Winnebago counties.
Evers is also seeking candidates to fill a vacancy that will open up when Judge Gary Sherman retires on July 4. The appointee would complete Sherman’s term, which ends in July 2020.
Sherman is a judge in the appeals court’s fourth district, which has headquarters in Madison and includes Adams, Clark, Columbia, Crawford, Dane, Dodge, Grant, Green, Iowa, Jackson, Jefferson, Juneau, La Crosse, Lafayette, Marquette, Monroe, Portage, Richland, Rock, Sauk, Vernon, Waupaca, Waushara and Wood counties.
Applications, which can be found on Evers’ website, must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. on May 10. Applicants with questions should call 608-266-1212.Follow @erikastrebel
