New Utah Judges Confirmed
The Utah State Senate voted yesterday, Oct. 19, 2011, to confirm Ryan M. Harris and Elizabeth A. Hruby-Mills as judges in the Third District Court.
For information about the new judges, see Governor Herbert's news release announcing his nominations.
After the governor makes his nomination, the Senate Judicial Confirmation Committee convenes to discuss the character and fitness of each nominee. If the committee gives a favorable report for the nominee, their name is forwarded to the entire senate for confirmation. The Senate Judicial Confirmation Committee met on Oct. 17, 2011, to interview and question the nominees. A copy of the agenda and an audio recording of the meeting is found here.
