CHARLESTON, W.Va. – On Monday, the Judicial Vacancy Advisory Commission submitted to Gov. Jim Justice three names for each term on the Intermediate Court of Appeals, which is set to open July 1, 2022.

“While the Justices and Court Administrative Staff continues to work on the logistics of the Intermediate Court of Appeals, the Judicial Vacancy Advisory Commission also had the important task of interviewing more than twenty attorneys interested in being judges for the new court,” said Supreme Court Chief Justice Evan Jenkins. “They have done their due diligence and given their recommendations to Governor Justice. The Governor now has the important task of selecting from this list of candidates to serve on the new court. We look forward to working with whomever he appoints.”
