After a district judicial nominating commission has nominated and submitted to the
governor the required number of nominees for appointment to fill a vacancy in the
office of judge of the district court, and prior to the appointment of a successor
to such office, any nomination may be withdrawn for cause of a substantial nature
affecting the nominee's qualifications to hold office, and another nominee may be
substituted therefor; and if any nominee dies or requests in writing that his or
her name be withdrawn, the commission shall nominate another person to replace him
Whenever there are existing at the same time two (2) or more vacancies in any judicial
district and the nominating commission for such judicial district has submitted to
the governor the required number of nominees for each of such vacancies, the commission
may withdraw the lists of nominations, prior to any appointment being made, and change
any of the persons so nominated from one list to another and resubmit them as so changed,
or may substitute a new nominee for any of those previously nominated. The action of the commission in withdrawing nominations may be taken at the same meeting
at which nominations are made, or at any later meeting called for such purpose.
