Urbanski gets nod from Roanoke bar

The Roanoke Bar Association today voted to recommend U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael Urbanski for the vacancy created when U.S. District Judge Norman Moon took senior status in February.

Virginia’s two U.S. senators have requested recommendations from bar groups for the Moon vacancy in the Western District and for the seat to open up in the Eastern District when U.S. District Judge Jerome B. Friedman takes senior status.

The Virginia State Bar’s judicial nominating committee will meet to consider recommendations on April 19 and is expected to publish its rankings on April 29.
