Filling Federal Judicial Vacancies in Maryland
My office is now accepting applications from lawyers interested in serving as United States District Judge for the District of Maryland.
United States District Judge Richard Bennett has informed the White House and the Senate of his intention to take senior status when his successor is confirmed. Applications are now being accepted for this vacancy.
Along with Senator Chris Van Hollen, I anticipate making recommendations for judicial nominations to President Joe Biden from the applicants. Those individuals who apply during this period also will be considered for other vacancies that may occur in the future for the office of United States District Judge for the District of Maryland.
Completed applications must be submitted by December 11, 2020.
