AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Members of Maine's congressional delegation are forwarding the names of two Maine attorneys and one judge for appointment to a federal judicial post in Maine.

Democratic U.S. Reps. Mike Michaud and Chellie Pingree and independent Sen. Angus King said Wednesday they are forwarding the names of Jon Levy, William Robitzek and Jeffrey Young to President Barack Obama.

Obama will choose a nominee to replace District Judge George Singal, who is taking senior status on July 31. The nominee faces a confirmation vote by the Senate.

Levy is an associate justice on the Maine Supreme Judicial Court, Robitzek is an attorney with Berman & Simmons in Lewiston, and Young is an attorney with McTeague Higbee in Topsham. They are among the 14 candidates reviewed by a screening panel.
