The TRF-3 (Federal Regional Court of the 3rd Region) today defined the triple list of lawyers nominated for the vacancy of judge of the court and among them there is the defender from Mato Grosso do Sul, Fernando Olavo Saddi Castro.
On April 4 of this year, the Federal Council of the OAB (Ordem dos Advogados do Brasil) chose the members of the six-fold list for the vacancy of judge and, in addition to Fernando, it was composed of the names of Luíz Henrique Volpe and Sandro Pissini, also of Mato Grosso do Sul, in addition to Marcelo Vieira de Campos, Rita Maria Costa Dias Nolasco and Vanusa Inácio Machado.
For today’s choice of TRF-3, Fernando, Marcelo Vieira and Rita Maria, the latter, from São Paulo, are still in the dispute.
The jurisdiction of the TRF3 is precisely MS and SP, therefore, for the fifth constitutional vacancy destined to the Bar Association, only defenders who work in these two federations are fit. The chosen one will fill the vacancy left by the retired judge Cecília Marcondes.
The definition of the chosen one will be made by President Jair Bolsonaro (PL), who will choose one of the three to occupy the vacancy.
