You've got under a week to apply!
Here's the announcement that appeared the other day in the New York Law Journal :
Lawyers interested in obtaining the Democratic nomination for a county-wide Civil Court vacancy in Manhattan must submit their application to a screening panel formed by the New York County Democratic Party no later than Friday, June 6. Copies of the required application forms may be obtained from the panel's administrator, Vilia B. Hayes, of Hughes, Hubbard & Reed, (212) 837-6000, or from the Party's office, (212) 687-6540. Under party rules, it may only endorse a candidate approved by its screening committee. The panel is required to forward the names of the three candidates it finds best qualified for the position. The Civil Court vacancy has been created by the appointment of Civil Court Judge Shirley Werner Kornreich to an interim seat on the Supreme Court in Manhattan.
