JEFFERSON CITY — A vacancy on the Missouri Court of Appeals' Western District has attracted a large crowd of applicants.

A judicial nominating commission meets Thursday in Jefferson City to select three finalists to submit to Gov. Jay Nixon. The governor then can appoint one of those to the court.
