Gordon Oldham, Attorney, and Co-Founder of the Pinellas Park-based firm, Oldham & Delcamp, LLC, announces his election to Chairman of the Judicial Nominating Commission for the 6th Judicial Circuit. Oldham, a native of Leesburg, Florida, had been appointed to the Commission first by Governor Rick Scott and later by Governor Ron DeSantis. Members of the Judicial Nominating Commission, 6th Judicial Circuit, recently elected him to Chairman.
According to the Florida Bar Association, the purpose of the Judicial Nominating Commissions is to provide a way to choose judges by appointment via a nonpartisan nine-member commission of lawyers and non-lawyers. These Judicial Nominating Commissions, also known as JNCs, identify, recruit, investigate, and evaluate candidates for judicial office. Then, they submit a minimum of three and a maximum of six names of the most highly qualified applicants to the Governor, who must make a final selection from the list.
Five of the nine members of each Judicial Nominating Commission are appointed directly by the governor. The Florida Bar sends their nominations to the governor to fill the remaining four slots.
“Having been nominated to the Judicial Nominating Commission first by former Governor Rick Scott and then by Governor Ron DeSantis, I’m excited to take on new responsibilities as Chairman,” says Oldham. “It’s an honor and a responsibility to ensure that we uphold the rights of all Floridians by sending the most qualified, impartial, and knowledgeable judicial candidates to the Governor for consideration. My involvement in the Judicial Nominating Commission and now my expanded role as Chairman enable me to uphold my belief in a fair justice system by actively participating in the process of vetting individuals seeking to become judges in our great state. I’m thankful to the Commission for electing me to Chairman and look forward to working together to achieve our goals.”
