18 apply for Missouri Supreme Court seat

At least five people who were assistant attorneys general when Gov. Jay Nixon was Missouri’s chief lawyer have applied to succeed Judge William Ray Price Jr. on the state Supreme Court.

The commission said Tuesday it will interview all 18 applicants on Oct. 10 at the state Supreme Court building, beginning at 10 a.m.
