Vacancies Open On Federal District Courts In Mass.

It's a tough job market out there, but at least two vacancies are up for grabs in Massachusetts, provided candidates have the right qualifications to be federal judges.

U.S. Sen. John Kerry said the non-partisan Judicial Selection Committee is now accepting applications for two upcoming judicial vacancies at the federal district courts in Springfield and Worcester.

Last month, as his first appointment as senior senator, Kerry tapped Massachusetts attorney Joan Lukey to lead the selection committee. The head of the committee is traditionally appointed by the state's senior senator.

Kerry said Lukey is already conducting a search to identify the best legal minds in Massachusetts to recommend to President Obama.

Kerry said any interested candidates for the jobs should contact Lukey.

Applications are due by May 16.
