Eleven applicants will be considered by the Trial Court Vacancy Commission for the 30th district circuit court vacancy, created after Judge Donna M. Fields announced her September retirement. The commission will meet on Aug. 8 to select nominees. The applicants from Memphis are Frank S. Cantrell, Margaret M. Chesney, Gwen Hewitt, Michael Wayne Mtichell, Regina Morrison Newman, Robert Bishop Rowling, David M. Rudolph and Mary L. Wagner. Gareth C. Leviton of Germantown also applied, as well as Lee Ann Pafford Dobson of Collierville and Gregory C. Krog Jr. of Cordova. Interviews and a public hearing will begin at 9 a.m. The commission is expected to vote immediately following the hearing and forward three names to Gov. Bill Haslam for his consideration.
