Both were unopposed when the deadline passed to file as a candidate for the Duval County and 4th Circuit bench.
With the petition qualifying deadline having passed May 16 for candidates to enter Florida’s 2022 elections, it’s assured that Jacksonville is getting two new women judges.
Audrey Moran is the only candidate who qualified for the Duval County judge, Group 5 election and Lindsay Tygart is the lone qualifier for the 4th Circuit Court, Group 23 election.
Moran is a 1984 graduate of Duke University School of Law. She is a former assistant state attorney and director of legislative affairs for former Mayor Ed Austin; chief of staff for former Mayor John Delaney; and senior vice president for social responsibility and community advocacy at Baptist Health.
She succeeds Duval County Judge John Moran, who did not seek re-election. The two are married.
Tygart is a 2006 graduate of Florida Coastal School of Law and a senior member of the medical malpractice division at Coker Law.
She succeeds Circuit Judge Jack Schemer, who is retiring.
Moran and Tygart did not return phone calls for comment.
