Alan Stephens, a longtime attorney in Idaho Falls, has been named to a new post as a 7th District judge by Gov. Butch Otter. “I was impressed once again by the quality and diversity of candidates put forward by the Judicial Council, including a prosecutor and a magistrate,” Otter said. “Alan has a long and distinguished career as a civil litigator, and I believe his experience and skill set make him an excellent match for the caseload in the Seventh District.” Click below for Otter's full announcement.

Amy Wallace Potter also was a candidate for the judgeship but wasn’t selected by the state Judicial Council as a finalist; she’s a lawyer in private practice in Jackson, Wyo. who resides in Victor, Idaho.
