DENVER (Legal Newsline) - Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper on Thursday received the names of three finalists to choose from to fill the vacancy on the state Supreme Court.

The state's Supreme Court Nominating Commission selected the candidates for a vacancy created by the retirement of the Justice Alex J. Martinez.

The nominees are: Brian D. Boatright of Arvada, Frederick T. Martinez of Castle Pines and Patrick T. O'Rourke of Highlands Ranch.

Under the Colorado Constitution, the governor now has 15 days, or until Oct. 28, to appoint one of the nominees as a justice on the Court.

The governor will interview each candidate on Oct. 21 and Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia will interview each candidate on Oct. 24.
