Gov. Ron DeSantis appointed nine new members of the 5th Circuit District Court of Appeal Judicial Nominating Commission on Sept. 2, including five attorneys who practice in Northeast Florida.

On June 2, HB 7027 became law, creating the new 6th District Court of Appeal, an addition recommended by the state Supreme Court.

As part of the restructuring of the state appellate court system, the 4th Judicial Circuit, comprising Clay, Duval and Nassau counties, moved from the 1st DCA in Tallahassee to the 5th DCA in Daytona Beach.

The 5th DCA now includes the 4th, 5th, 7th and 18th judicial circuits in Central and Northeast Florida.

Under the new law, the terms of all members of the judicial nominating commissions of the 1st, 2nd and 5th DCAs were terminated to account for the change in boundaries caused by the creation of the 6th DCA.

The commissions interview and nominate applicants for judicial vacancies in their respective districts.
