Idaho Falls attorney named to bench

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.

The other two finalists for the judgeship were Stephen J. Clark, a magistrate judge in Salmon, and Bruce L. Pickett, a prosecuting attorney for Bonneville County in Idaho Falls. 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.
