New Utah Judges
The Utah State Senate today voted to confirm Judge Clark McClellan (Eighth District) and Judge Katherine Bernards-Goodman (Third District) as new district court judges.
For information about the new judges, check out Governor Herbert's news release announcing his nominations. After the governor makes his nominations, the Senate Judicial Confirmation Committee convenes to discuss the character and fitness of the nominees. The audio recordings, agenda and committee reports are available online.
In this case, the committee gave a favorable report of the two nominees, so their names were forwarded to the entire senate, which meets in extraordinary session to vote on the governor's nominations. The audio recording and related materials are also available online.
