In full transparency, the following is a media release from Sen. Ed Markey and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who were elected by voters in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to serve the state in Washington DC in the US Senate. Both are Democrats.
BOSTON – In the wake of Judge William G. Young announcing his intention to retire from regular active service as a United States District Court Judge, United States Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) reconvened a bipartisan advisory committee last month to review and provide additional recommendations on federal District Court candidates from across Massachusetts.
Candidates interested in applying for a U.S. District Court nomination who have not previously applied this year must submit their applications to the Advisory Committee by Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
“The Advisory Committee plays a critical role in ensuring that highly qualified, fair-minded judges are appointed to the federal district courts in the Commonwealth,” said Senators Warren and Markey. “We look forward to receiving the Committee’s recommendations.”
Applications must be completed and received by the Advisory Committee by Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
Candidates who have already submitted an application and would like to update or supplement their materials prior to the new deadline should email Judge Gertner at GertnerCommittee@gmail.com
