Deadlines extended for Arizona court applications

The deadline to apply for appointments to fill two Arizona Court of Appeals vacancies is being extended because only a few people have applied so far and they’re all Republicans.

A state screening commission’s nominees to the governor cannot be all from the same party, and so far only five Republicans have applied for the two openings.

The original application deadline of Jan. 13 is being extended to Jan. 31.

The two seats that are vacant are both reserved for Maricopa County residents.

The openings were created by the retirement of Judge Daniel Barker and the resignation of Judge Patrick Irvine.
