Last month, the Eastern District of Virginia posted a notice seeking applicants for a federal Magistrate Judge position in the Norfolk Division. Public Notice Applications are due by September 1, 2009. The Notice states how the selection will be made:
"A merit selection panel composed of attorneys and other members of the community will review all applicants. Due consideration will be given to all qualified applicants. The merit selection panel will then recommend to the district judges in confidence the five persons it considers best qualified. The court will make the appointment following an FBI full-field investigation and an IRS tax check of the applicant selected by the court for appointment."
