Finalists Selected for Vacancy on Bent County Court Bench

On Tuesday, January 29, 2013, the Sixteenth Judicial District Nominating Commission announced its selection of three nominees to fill the vacancy on the bench of the Bent County Court. The vacancy is created by the appointment of Hon. Mark A. MacDonnell to the bench of the Sixteenth Judicial District court, effective February 3, 2013.

The three nominees are Marcus Behm of Manzanola, Julie Jones of La Junta, and Samuel Vigil of La Junta. Contact information for the nominees is available on the Judicial Branch website.

Under the Colorado Constitution, the governor has 15 days from January 29, 2013, to appoint one of the nominees to the bench. If the governor does not appoint one of the nominees within the 15 days, then the chief justice of the Colorado Supreme Court must appoint one of the nominees.
