In this edition of East Idaho Newsmakers, Nate Eaton talks with newly appointed Idaho Supreme Court Justice Gregory Moeller.
Moeller has been serving as a Seventh District Judge since April 2009. He was picked to fill the Idaho Supreme Court vacancy left by the retirement of Justice Joel Horton.
Moeller was one of four finalists nominated to the state’s highest court by the Idaho Judicial Council. Prior to becoming a district judge, Moeller was a partner in the law firm of Rigby, Thatcher, Andrus, Rigby & Kam, in Rexburg.
Moeller has presided over more than 50 trials in seven different counties. He also presides over the Upper Valley Mental Health Court and serves on five Idaho Supreme Court Committees, including the faculty for training new judges.
Eaton and Moeller discuss what his new duties will now be on the Supreme Court, his experience as a judge, the unique connection he has with the novel To Kill a Mockingbird and its author, and a whole lot more.
