First look at this article:
First Judicial Circuit Judge Jan Shackelford is one of three finalists for a federal judgeship in the North District of Florida.
The vacancy is pending U.S. District Judge Richard Smoak’s transition to senior judge status Dec. 31.
The other finalists are Linda Bond Edwards, a Tallahasse attorney, and Philip R. Lammens, a U.S. magistrate judge in Ocala.
The three finalists were selected by the Florida Federal Judicial Nominating Commission on Monday after interviewing in Tallahassee. They were announced Wednesday in letters to Sens. Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio.
Before someone makes these nominations, you would they would have the common sense to google Shackelford and find out what she has been up to and it should be put in any nomination package.
Unbelievable. As bad as Judge Connors in the Sykes case, not knowing what jurisdiction is, not making sure both Mary and her elderly siblings were served with the time, date and place of the guardianship hearing for Mary Sykes, and then being promoted to the 2nd circuit court of appeals thereafter as her reward for not understanding jurisdiction.
Even a school child knows that a Google search is important to any research project.
Obviously those who nominate Federal Judges have not risen to that level.
Obviously those who slate the judicial candidates in Illinois also don’t Google. Someday that will end. What a bunch of idiots.
