For more than 30 years Johnson County has used a judicial merit selection and
retention system for District Court and Magistrate Judges. The Tenth Judicial
District Judicial Nominating Commission consists of a chairperson, 7 lawyers and 7 non-lawyers.
When a vacancy is announced, the Commission
commences the judicial nomination procedure. All of the Commission’s
meetings are open to the public. The Commission welcomes citizen input and engagement.
