U.S. Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Rob Portman (R-OH) are calling for applications to fill three judicial vacancies for the U.S. District Courts for the Northern District of Ohio. U.S. District Courts are general trial courts that hear both civil and criminal cases. U.S. District Court judges are nominated by the President of the United States and must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate. Brown and Portman work together to recommend names to the Biden Administration. Their efforts are aided by a bipartisan judicial advisory commission whose members are chosen by both senators to review applications and make recommendations to the Senators. Candidates who are interested in filling the vacancies should submit their applications using the links below by Tuesday, March 16, 2021.
