In March 2015, a merit selection committee was appointed by the Judicial Council of the Third Circuit to recommend candidates for a future vacancy on the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey (Newark). A public notice of the position vacancy was widely circulated to publicize the vacancy, applications were received, and interviews of applicants were conducted. Following its deliberations, the committee submitted a report and recommendations to the Judicial Council for the Third Circuit.
After considering the recommendations of the selection committee, the Judicial Council conducted interviews with the leading candidates and then made its recommendation for the bankruptcy judgeship vacancy to the appointing authority, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
Having considered the Judicial Council’s recommendation, the United States Court of Appeals has found Stacey L. Meisel, Esq., of Becker Meisel LLC in Livingston, New Jersey, to be most qualified and is, at present, considering her appointment to the bankruptcy judgeship. This notice is intended to solicit written comments concerning the qualifications of Stacey L. Meisel for this position. Such comments will be accepted until June 29, 2015 and should be addressed to:
