New Utah Judge Confirmed
The Utah State Senate yesterday voted to confirm Julie Lund (Third District Juvenile) to replace Judge Sharon McCully as a new Utah State Court judge.
For information about Judge Lund, check out Governor Herbert's news release announcing his nomination. After the governor makes his nomination, the Senate Judicial Confirmation Committee convenes to discuss the character and fitness of the nominees.
