There are three finalists to succeed U.S. District Judge Jon McCalla, who will shortly be leaving the bench to take senior status.

All Memphians, they are: Sheri Lipman, counsel for the University of Memphis; Steve Mulroy, professor of law at the University and member of the Shelby County Commission; and Irma Merrill Stratton, a lawyer in private practice.

All were recommended by 9th District congressman Steve Cohen, and all have successfully undergone interviews by a screening committee and vetting by the FBI.

Ultimately, the appointee will be named by President Obama and will require confirmation by the U.S. Senate.
