FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Supreme Court will not move a soon-to-be-vacant state district court judgeship out of Fargo.
Gov. Jack Dalrymple recently appointed East Central District Judge Lisa Fair McEvers, of Fargo, to the Supreme Court, effective Jan. 1. Under state law, whenever a district judgeship becomes vacant the Supreme Court must review whether the judgeship is necessary and if so, whether it should be moved to another district.
Justices say they have concluded that the Fargo judgeship is necessary in its present location.
