The Hildale Justice Court judge nominating process is chugging along. A Utah State Courts committee picked three nominees:

K. Jake Graff of Bingham Snow & Caldwell in Washington

Honorable Karlin S. Myers, Hurricane Justice Court, Ivins

Manuel M. Palma, retired, from the Department of Labor, Mine Safety & Health Administration in St. George

There's a comment period set to run through April 19. To comment, email Shari Veverka, Administrative Office of the Courts, at shariv@email.utcourts.gov.

A final candidate will selected by Hildale Mayor Phillip Barlow within a month. It will be approved by the Hidale City Council. The Utah Judicial Council must also certify the appointment.

The judge will replace Richard D. Carr, a senior justice court judge from Hurricane, who has been the acting judge since the Utah Supreme Court removed Walter Steed for practicing polygamy in 2006.
