Judge Ron Bush will have his official investiture ceremony today as a federal magistrate judge, at 1:30 at the federal courthouse in Boise, Courtroom 2. The public is invited. Bush has served as an Idaho 6th District judge since 2003, and previously was a partner with Hawley Troxell Ennis & Hawley in Pocatello and Boise, practicing media law, business law and personal injury law.
The federal court in Idaho also has a new chief magistrate judge: Judge Candy Dale. Dale, who took office as a federal magistrate judge in March and is the first female judge in that position in Idaho, succeeds former Chief Magistrate Judge Larry Boyle.
