MEMPHIS (AP) – The search is on for a new judge in Shelby County after the death of W. Otis Higgs.

The Judicial Nominating Commission says it is accepting applications for the vacancy in the 30th Judicial District's Criminal Court.

Higgs died at his home Feb. 15. He was 75.

To be considered, an applicant must be an attorney who is at least 30 years old, a resident of Tennessee for five years and a resident of the district for one year.

Applicants must complete the form found at www.tncourts.gov. The application must be submitted to the Administrative Office of the Courts by March 11.

The interview, public hearing and deliberation process will be open to the public.
