Four nominated for Idaho Supreme Court

The Idaho Judicial Council has forwarded four names to the governor for the opening on the Idaho Supreme Court that’s coming up at the end of July when Chief Justice Gerald Schroeder retires. The four nominees: Michael Gilmore, deputy attorney general; Joel D. Horton, 4th District judge; Warren E. Jones, Boise attorney; and Clive Strong, deputy attorney general. The four were selected after the judicial council last week interviewed 19 candidates. Gov. Butch Otter says he has no estimate of when he’ll make the choice. “He wants to make sure he gets the right person, the right fit for the court,” said Otter’s press secretary, Jon Hanian. “He’s not looking for an activist judge; he’s looking for a strict constitutionalist.”
