Luster retires

COEUR d'ALENE - After nearly 27 years on the bench in Kootenai County, John Luster is retiring at the end of this month.

“I still enjoy the work, there's just too much of it,” said Luster, 61.

He was appointed a 1st District Court judge in August 2000 by then Gov. Dirk Kempthorne, after serving as a magistrate since May 1986.

Luster, a Coeur d'Alene resident, will continue working part time as a judge for the next few years.

This week, Gov. Butch Otter interviewed three candidates seeking to replace Luster: Magistrate Scott Wayman, St. Maries attorney Richard Christensen, and Kootenai County civil attorney John Cafferty. Full story, David Cole, Cda Press
