Gov. Neil Abercrombie

The list of Supreme Court Associate Justice Nominees is out.

The Judicial Selection Commission released the names on Monday.

The nominees would fill the seat of Associate Justice Simeon Acoba, who is retiring in March.

“There are six names. I’m going to go forthrightly and make a determination and submit a name to the Senate for confirmation as soon as possible,” Gov. Neil Abercrombie said.

According to the commission, 16 people applied this year.
