March 31, 2004|by BRIAN SHAPPELL

The Washington County Judicial Nominating Commission met Tuesday to interview eight applicants seeking the seat on the bench vacated by District Judge R. Noel Spence, who retired.

Typically, according to the Maryland courts Web site, interviews of applicants for open seats on the bench are conducted in the morning, a vote is taken by the commission and the names of nominees are reported to the governor.

The Governor's Office notifies the appointed individual and then typically releases an official public notice, according to the Web site.

The names were not available for release Tuesday evening, a spokesman in the governor's legal office said.

Commission Chairman John H. Urner was among several commission members who said they could not comment on the proceedings late Tuesday. He said the results would be posted about noon today on the Maryland Judiciary Web site.

The applicants for the position are Gregory Curtis Bannon, Mary Anne Day, Daniel Patrick Dwyer, Jerome Joseph Joyce, M. Kenneth Long Jr., R. David Pembroke, Robert C. Veil Jr. and Margaret Lynn Williams, according to the site.
