WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and John Cornyn (R-Texas) today announced that they are accepting applications for a judicial vacancy in the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division. The Senators have established a bipartisan panel of leading attorneys in Texas to help identify the most qualified candidates to fill this vacancy. This panel, known as the Federal Judicial Evaluation Committee, reviews applications, interviews candidates, and makes recommendations to the Senators.

“It is critical that this Houston seat is filled by someone with a deep respect for the Constitution and the rule of law,” Sen. Cruz said. “There are many excellent men and women in Texas who fit that description and I encourage them all to apply.” 

“As a former judge and Attorney General of Texas, I understand the importance of ensuring that we have the best people sitting on the federal bench and enforcing the law in Texas,” said Sen. Cornyn. “I encourage all qualified individuals interested in serving to submit their information to the review committee.” 

Senators Cruz and Cornyn invite qualified attorneys to seek appointment by submitting their resumes and completed questionnaires to both lawmakers’ offices. The questionnaire is available here

Completed application packets must be received at the below email addresses no later than October 23, 2018. Email is strongly recommended because of delays due to security procedures involving Congressional mail. Submitted questionnaires will be reviewed by the Federal Judicial Evaluation Committee, and selected candidates will be invited to interview. Questions regarding applications may also be directed to the contacts listed below.
