The Fourth Judicial District is seeking applicants for a new county court judgeship that starts July 1.

The legislature created the new position last year to help address crowded El Paso and Teller county dockets.

Eligible candidates must live in El Paso County and must be admitted to the practice of law in Colorado. The current annual salary is $113,856. The initial term is provisional for two years and then must be returned to the bench by the voters for additional four-year terms.

Applications are also available on the court’s Web site. Applications are due noon April 2.
