The seat was vacated by Judge Joel Medd when he retired Sept. 1. Gov. Jack Dalrymple now has 30 days to choose one of the finalists, ask for a different list of nominees or call for an election.

Whoever is chosen will serve as judge until the next general election after two years as judge, according to a press release from the North Dakota Supreme Court.

The finalists are Don Hager, Larimore; Jon Jensen, Grand Forks; M. Jason McCarthy, Grand Forks; Lolita Romanick, Grand Forks; and Jon Thelen, Grand Forks.
