Idaho Court of Appeals Judge Karen Lansing plans to retire June 30 after 22 years on the bench, she announced today. “The opportunity to serve Idahoans as a Court of Appeals judge has been one of the greatest honors of my life,” said Judge Lansing. “It has been a privilege and joy to serve with colleagues, past and present, who have brought such skill and dedication to their work serving this state. I look forward to continuing to contribute to the judiciary on a part-time basis as a senior judge.”
The Idaho Judicial Council will accept applications for the position, and Gov. Butch Otter will announce Lansing’s replacement later this year. You can read the court’s full announcement here.
