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.
