Panel Recommends Five Santa Fe Lawyers For Judgeship
An independent commission has recommended five Santa Fe lawyers to Republican Gov. Susana Martinez for possible appointment to a state district court judgeship.
One of those endorsed by the nominating commission is David Thomson, who was a district judge for several months in 2010 but lost in the Democratic primary that year.
Other nominees are Sonya Carrasco-Trujillo, a lawyer in the state Department of Public Safety; Matthew Wilson, a domestic relations hearing officer in the 1st Judicial District Court; Paul Grace, who has his own law practice, and Joseph Manges, a partner in a private law firm in Santa Fe.
Thomson worked in the attorney general's office from 2002 to 2010.
The governor's appointee will fill a vacancy created by Judge Stephen Pfeffer's retirement next month.
