Six finalists, including two state judges, a federal magistrate and a former law clerk to deceased U.S. Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist, have been named for two federal judge openings in the middle district of Florida. The judicial nominating commission for the district sent the six names to U.S. Sens. Mel Martinez and Bill Nelson, who will jointly make the final selections after conducting personal interviews. The finalists are William Jung, a Tampa attorney and former law clerk to Rehnquist; Mary Scriven, a federal magistrate in the middle district; Charlene Honeywell, a Tampa state judge; Tom Icard, a Sarasota attorney; Frederick Lauten, an Orlando state court judge; and Roy “Skip” Dalton Jr., a personal injury lawyer and former law partner of Sen. Martinez. Icard and Scriven were finalists for a federal judge position two years ago, according to JNC chair Marcos Marchena. The two judicial posts are opening because two existing judges, Chief Judge Patricia Fawsett and Judge Susan C. Bucklew, are taking senior status. The middle district of Florida encompasses three of the largest cities in Florida � Tampa, Jacksonville and Orlando � and includes 10 million people.
