BISMARCK-- A Grand Forks judge is among three finalists for a vacancy on the North Dakota Supreme Court.

Judge Jon J. Jensen of the Northeast Central Judicial District was announced as a finalist for the seat of retired Justice Carol Kapsner.

Judge James S. Hill, of the South Central District in Mandan, and Judge Robin A. Schmidt, of the Northwest District in Watford City, are the other finalists for the position.

Their names will be forwarded to Gov. Doug Burgum for consideration.

The Judicial Nominating Committee began seeking a new justice May 3 following Kapsner's retirement announcement. Eleven lawyers applied for the vacancy. The three finalists are the only sitting judges to apply.
