Local judge asks public for support in upcoming Idaho Supreme Court selection
The Idaho Supreme Court has an opening and only one of the multiple candidates is from Eastern Idaho.
Judge Gregory Moeller of the seventh judicial district is one of 14 candidates for a spot on the Idaho Supreme Court. He was also a candidate last summer before Judge Richard Bevan from Pocatello was eventually selected for the position.
“This time, as the only candidate from Eastern Idaho, I will once again need all the local support I can get from the public, members of the bar, and public officials,” Moeller said in a statement.
In his statement, Moeller said if he is selected he will do his best to provide Idahoans equal protection under the law and protect the rule of law.
“It is an honor to once again be considered among such well-qualified and experienced judges and lawyers for this position,” Moeller said. “I anticipate the selection process will be very competitive”
