    United States District Court

    Public Notice

     

    United States Magistrate Judge

    Miami, Florida

     

    The Judicial Conference of the United States has authorized the appointment of a full-time United States Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of Florida at Miami, Florida. This appointment will succeed the incumbent who will retire effective January 7, 2022. The essential function of courts is to dispense justice. An important component of this function is the creation and maintenance of diversity in the court system. A community’s belief that a court dispenses justice is heightened when the court reflects the community’s diversity.

    The duties of the position are demanding and wide ranging, including, but not limited to: 1) conduct of most preliminary proceedings in criminal cases; 2) trial and disposition of misdemeanor cases; 3) conduct of various pretrial matters and evidentiary proceedings on delegation from the judges of the district court; 4) trial and disposition of civil cases upon consent of the litigants; and 5) assist the district court with any “additional duties as are not inconsistent with the Constitution and Laws of the United States.” The basic jurisdiction of the United States magistrate judge is specified in Title 28, United States Code, Section 636. To be qualified for the appointment an applicant must:

    1.                  Be, and have been for at least five years, a member in good standing of the bar of the highest court of a state, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Territory of Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, or the Virgin Islands of the United States, and have been engaged in the active practice of law for a period of at least five years (with some substitutes authorized);

    2.                  Be competent to perform all the duties of the office; be of good moral character; be emotionally stable and mature; be committed to equal justice under the law; be in good health; be patient and courteous; and be capable of deliberation and decisiveness;

    3.                  Be less than seventy years old; and

    4.                  Not be related to a judge of the district court.

    A Merit Selection panel (see Administrative Order 2021-14) composed of attorneys and other members of the community will review all applicants and recommend to the judges of the district court, in confidence, the three persons it considers best qualified. The Court will make the appointment following an FBI fullfield investigation and an IRS tax check of the applicant selected by the court for appointment. The individual selected must comply with the financial disclosure requirements pursuant to the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, Pub. L. No. 95-521, 90 Stat. 1824 (1978)(codified at 5 U.S.C. app. 4§§ 101-111) as implemented by the Judicial Conference of the United States. An affirmative effort will be made to give due consideration to all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, age (40 and over), gender, religion, national origin, or disability. The current annual salary for the position is $201,112.  The term of office is eight years.  In order to be available for emergency, after hours and weekend duty matters, the successful applicant is expected to reside within the division applied for, or an adjacent division within the District, or relocate to the division (or adjacent division) within a reasonable amount of time upon appointment.  

    Click here for the official application. Applications must be submitted only by applicants personally to Flsd_magistratejudgerecruitment@flsd.uscourts.gov.

    All applications will be kept confidential, unless the applicant consents to disclosure, and all applications will be examined only by members of the Merit Selection Panel and the judges of the district court. The panel’s deliberations will remain confidential.   The Court’s policy is that once an application has been submitted, applicants should not initiate contact with members of the Merit Selection Panel.  Applicants may, however, respond to inquiries initiated by Panel members.

    Instructions for completion and submission of the application are included on each application form. Completed applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 19, 2021.

    Compensation: Salary range in Washington, DC: $147,155+
    Job Category Attorney
    Job Description: Earthjustice is now accepting applications for a Staff Attorney to join our Washington, D.C. Regional Office. The position will focus primarily on litigation and advocacy to promote stronger national rules, programs and policies to combat climate change and its harmful effects on people and the planet.
    Earthjustice is the nation’s premier nonprofit environmental law organization. We take on major, precedent-setting cases across the country. We wield the power of law and the strength of partnership to protect people’s health, preserve magnificent places and wildlife, advance clean energy, and combat climate change. We partner with thousands of groups, supporters, individuals and communities to engage the critical environmental issues of our time and bring about positive change. We are here because the earth needs a good lawyer.
    Founded in 1971, Earthjustice has a distinguished history of using litigation and advocacy to achieve significant, lasting environmental protections. We achieve this by hiring people who share a passion for justice and a healthy environment. Our headquarters are in San Francisco with offices in Anchorage, Chicago, Juneau, Los Angeles, Tallahassee, Miami, Honolulu, New York, Philadelphia, Denver, Seattle, Bozeman, Chicago, and Washington, DC.
    The Washington, D.C. office serves as a center for litigation on important national environmental issues, a regional office for issues arising in Mid-Atlantic States, and a source of legal advocacy on environmental justice issues in a variety of locations. The office’s docket currently includes litigation and administrative advocacy to protect public health and the environment from air pollution, hazardous wastes, and dangerous chemicals; curb greenhouse gas emissions and promote energy efficiency, clean energy and clean transportation; and protect streams, wetlands, and drinking water. A significant focus of our work is preventing environmental harms to children, disproportionately impacted communities of color, and low-income communities. For more information about the office’s work, visit http://earthjustice.org/about/offices/dc.
    Earthjustice has a longstanding record of success with our litigation and advocacy to attack climate pollution and other dangerous air emissions and to advance a transition from fossil fuels to clean energy. We played a significant role in litigation establishing EPA’s power to limit greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act and defending the agency’s initial exercise of that power. In recent years, we have achieved major success in securing stronger air pollution limits on dirty coal-fired power plants, effective national energy efficiency standards that have dramatically cut power use, increased reliance on and access to clean energy across the country, and zero-emissions transportation commitments at the local and state level. We seek a staff attorney to advance stronger national initiatives to curb greenhouse gas emission as we continue our focus on ensuring a just and equitable transition for those most impacted by power plants and industries that generate climate pollution. Examples of the work the staff attorney may pursue include the following:
    *Act as Earthjustice’s lead counsel in ongoing and potential litigation to secure and strengthen national greenhouse emission standards for major industries.
    * National litigation and advocacy to eliminate or curb greenhouse emissions from the power, transportation, and building sectors
    * Research, develop, and pursue litigation and advocacy to curtail federal subsidies for extraction, processing and use of fossil fuels.
    * Research and develop innovative legal strategies to significantly limit climate pollution in the U.S. and internationally.
    * Provide substantive input on draft climate legislation.
    * Act as an Earthjustice representative at partner meetings and conferences on national climate regulatory issues.
    The staff attorney will work closely with our existing team of experienced litigators, scientists, policy advocates, and other dedicated staff in D.C. and other Earthjustice offices across the nation. Additionally, staff attorneys are expected to help foster the development of early career attorneys and other staff. Staff attorneys supervise other staff in connection with their work on particular projects and may be asked to serve as the formal supervisor for one or more early-career staff.
    Job Requirements: Responsibilities
    Conduct and supervise advocacy before federal agencies and courts as warranted.
    Manage new and existing cases from start to finish.
    Coordinate the development and execution of non-litigation advocacy strategies in collaboration with attorneys, policy staff and communications staff as appropriate.
    Conduct factual investigations and develop legal theories for possible advocacy or litigation advancing the goals of our clients.
    Supervise the work of Associate Attorneys, Scientists, Researchers, Litigation Assistants, and Law Clerks individually and as part of litigation teams.
    Develop and manage relationships with co-counsel and with a diverse group of clients and coalition partners.

    Work effectively with other departments within Earthjustice, including Communications, Development, Operations, and Policy and Legislation.
    Collaborate with and oversee the work of technical experts.
    Serve as spokesperson for Earthjustice, clients, and partners.
    Help develop and execute effective media strategies.
    Join other staff in long-term planning, strategy development, goal setting, and work plan management that advances a collective vision for future D.C. Office work.
    Participate as an active member of a learning and mentorship culture, and engage with colleagues in manner that is respectful, professional, and supportive.
    Participate actively in organizational and office-specific efforts to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace, and personally engage with colleagues, clients, and partners in a manner that is consistent with those efforts.
    Qualifications
    Juris Doctorate (JD) degree from an ABA accredited law school.
    A minimum of eight years of relevant litigation and advocacy experience.
    Admitted or eligible to waive in for admission to the District of Columbia Bar.
    Given the position’s focus on federal laws and advocacy, the ideal candidate will be willing and able to work in our Washington, D.C. office once it reopens. The D.C. office is currently closed due to the pandemic. As with all staff, the person in this position will work remotely until the office reopens. Although there is a strong preference for the incumbent to work in the D.C office after reopening, applicants seeking to work in other geographic areas are welcome to apply.
    Knowledge of, and experience in, environmental and administrative law (including experience under the Clean Air Act) is strongly preferred.
    Knowledge of causes and effects of climate change and strategies to curb greenhouse gas emissions is a plus.
    Strong skills in communicating litigation and advocacy goals and messages to the media.
    Excellent legal research, writing, and oral advocacy skills.
    Strong initiative, good judgment, creativity, a collegial work style, and a strong work ethic.

    Job Title: Associate Attorney, Toxic Exposure and Health Program
    Job Location: New York, NY
    Job Type: Full-time
    Compensation: Salary range in New York, NY: $82,900 - $104,800 0-5 years' experience
    Job Category Attorney
    Job Description: Earthjustice is seeking an Associate Attorney to join the Toxic Exposure & Health Program. The work of the Toxic Exposure & Health Program is at the heart of Earthjustice’s mission to defend the right of all people to live, work, and raise children in a healthy environment. The attorney selected for this position will work closely with other professionals (attorneys, scientists, policy analysts, communications experts) seeking to protect families, communities, and populations—especially those most overburdened or susceptible to harm—from toxic chemicals in the workplace, in consumer products, in the built environment, and in the outside environment. The attorney also will partner with Earthjustice staff who focus on securing clean air, clean water, and sustainable food and agriculture. The successful candidate will be housed in our New York City office (though will work remotely while these offices are closed due to COVID-19), and may be called on to litigate around the country. We are seeking someone to start in April 2021.
    Earthjustice is the premier nonprofit environmental law organization. We take on the biggest, most precedent-setting cases across the country. We wield the power of law and the strength of partnership to protect people’s health; to preserve magnificent places and wildlife; to advance clean energy; and to combat climate change. We partner with thousands of groups to engage on the critical environmental issues of our time and bring about positive change. We are here because the earth needs a good lawyer.
    Founded in 1971, Earthjustice has a distinguished track record of achieving significant, lasting environmental protections. We achieve this by hiring people who share a passion for justice and a healthy environment. Our headquarters are in San Francisco with offices in Anchorage, Juneau, Los Angeles, Tallahassee, Miami, Honolulu, New York, Philadelphia, Denver, Chicago, Seattle, Bozeman, and Washington, DC.
    Exposure to toxic chemicals is linked to chronic diseases and health conditions, many of which are on the rise as toxic exposures have increased. The goal of the Toxic Exposure & Health Program is to use litigation and other legal advocacy to ensure that all people have safe workplaces and neighborhoods, access to safe drinking water and food, and live in homes that are free of hazardous chemicals. In recent years, attorneys doing this work have won a groundbreaking lawsuit requiring EPA to improve its lead hazard standards, successfully petitioned the Consumer Product Safety Commission to ban a toxic class of flame retardants in consumer products, prevailed in a challenge to rules that would have allowed EPA to ignore the risks posed by legacy uses of toxic substances, such as lead in drinking water pipes, when it conducts chemical risk evaluations, and sued the United States Department of Defense for incinerating toxic PFAS chemicals without environmental review.
    Our goal is to produce the highest quality legal work in a diverse, inclusive, supportive, and collegial environment.
    Responsibilities:
    Work closely with Staff Attorneys, professional staff and clients to investigate, develop, and litigate cases.
    Participate in the full range of tasks involved in complex litigation, including factual investigation, legal research, discovery, briefing, witness preparation, and oral advocacy.
    Develop and engage in legal advocacy, including draft and review legislation; draft rulemaking petitions, comments to agencies, letters, fact sheets and other materials; and participate in coalition meetings and events.
    Handle other legal work to further the work of the Toxic Exposure & Health program.
    Engage with clients, coalition partners, and experts.
    Hire and supervise law students who work at Earthjustice as interns or clerks.
    Associate attorney positions are 3-year terms with the possibility of promotion to a senior associate attorney position with an additional 3-year term. Associate attorneys often move into other positions within the organization, while others take their experience and apply it in impactful careers outside of Earthjustice.
    We offer a mission-focused work environment and a competitive compensation package, including excellent benefits. Earthjustice is an equal opportunity employer and highly values diversity.
    Job Requirements: Qualifications
    Law school graduate and admitted to, or willing to apply for admission to, the New York State Bar.
