Seven Memphis attorneys — four prosecutors from the Shelby County District Attorney General’s office, two federal prosecutors and a corporate general counsel – have applied to be the new judge of Shelby County Criminal Court Division 6.

The position is vacant with the confirmation of John Fowlkes as the new U.S. District Court judge for the Western District of Tennessee.

Those who had applied by the deadline to the Tennessee Judicial Nominating Commission are: John Campbell, deputy district attorney general; Glenda Adams, Kevin Rardin and Michael McCusker, all assistant district attorneys general; Assistant U.S. Attorney Larry Laurenzi; Dean DeCandia, special assistant U.S. attorney; and Robert Price Harris, a part-time municipal judge and general counsel to EUSA of Memphis Inc.

The Judicial Nominating Commission will hold a public hearing Aug. 24 at 9 a.m. at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law, 1 N. Front St.

After the hearing, the commission will interview each applicant in another public session and later recommend three candidates to the governor. The governor must pick one of the three finalists or get another list of three finalists from the commission.
