TFTN: ‘Tis Idaho Judiciary Golden Age

Lots of folks are understandably dispirited about the state of the legislative and executive branches of Idaho government these days. On some levels, frankly, they’re a mess. But Idaho has a third branch of government, the judiciary. And it may be the best it’s been in the state’s 121-year-history. Things got even better this week with the announcement that Justice Roger Burdick, a former Twin Falls district judge and Jerome lawyer who presided for a time over the Snake River Basin Adjudication, has been elected by his fellow Supreme Court justices as chief justice of Idaho. He’ll take office next month/Steve Crump, Twin Falls Times-News. More here.

Question: How much do you know about the Idaho Supreme Court?
