Iowa Supreme Court candidates interview for position

Local News

A seat in the Iowa Supreme Court will be opening up in the coming months.

It comes after Justice Bruce Zager will be retiring in September. 

A total of 22 people have applied to fill the seat, and each one had an interview Monday. 

Only one of the candidate is from the Siouxland area; Patrick Tott is currently a district court judge for the third district in Sioux City. 

Once all the interviews are complete, the state judicial nominating commission will debate and select a few front runners. 

And within 30 days, Governor Reynolds will have to appoint a new justice.
