New District Judge Appointment

Governor Kim Reynolds has appointed a magistrate judge to fill a vacant judgeship in Judicial District three-B.

Todd Deck…a partner in a Sioux City law firm… will take the bench in January, 2018. Thirteen applicants were considered for the position. Efforts will now get underway to fill the Magistrate position that Deck held.

Judicial District three-B consists of Crawford, Ida, Monona, Plymouth, Sioux and Woodbury counties. District Court Administrator Leesa McNeil says two district judgeships remain vacant in the third judicial district due to budget cuts.
