New Utah Judges
The Utah State Senate yesterday voted to confirm Charlene Barlow (Third District) and Andrew Stone (Third District) as new Utah State 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. To find recordings and reports about these two judges, select the November 10, 2010 meeting date.
In this case, the committee gave a favorable report for the two nominees, so their names were forwarded to the entire senate, which met yesterday, November 17, in the 2010 12th Extraordinary Session to vote on the governor's nominations. The audio recording and related materials are also available online.
