TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A commission in northeast Kansas is taking nominations until May 24 for a seat on the state trial court that sits in Topeka.

The new judge will replace Judge Charles Andrews, who retired from the Shawnee County District Court at the end of March.

Nominations will be screened by a seven-member commission headed by Kansas Supreme Court Justice Marla Luckert. Attorneys can nominate themselves, or people can suggest candidates.

Under state law, the potential judge must be at least 30 years old, live in Shawnee County and have actively practiced law for at least five years.

The commission plans to meet June 11 to interview candidates. The panel will forward two or three names to Gov. Sam Brownback, who will make the appointment.
