North Dakota Supreme Court Justice Carol Ronning Kapsner says she will retire at the end of July after more than 18 years on the bench.
Carol Ronning Kapsner, who was sworn in as North Dakota’s third female Supreme Court justice in 1998, announced Tuesday that she will retire from the state’s highest bench at the end of July with about three years remaining on her 10-year term.
The Governor will appoint Kapsner’s successor. The judicial nominating committee will interview candidates and submit a list of names.
Under state law, the person appointed to the judgeship would serve until the 2018 general election and, if elected, the remainder of Kapsner’s unexpired term.
