(S.D.)-Panel Appointed To Guide State's Judge Candidates

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 11/05/2013 08:23 AM
     PIERRE, S.D. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - All 41 of South Dakota's circuit judges are up for re-election next year - something that happens every eight years.
 
     So to guide candidates through election laws, Supreme Court Chief Justice David Gilbertson has appointed a nine-member commission that will also investigate ethics complaints.
 
     The
state didn't allow judicial candidates to campaign for office until 2006. That was the first election year after a 2002 ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court that bans on judicial campaigning were unconstitutional.
