BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Jack Dalrymple has appointed Minot attorney Stacy Louser to a judgeship in the North Central Judicial District.
Louser is a partner in the Minot law firm of Louser and Zent. She will replace Judge William McLees Jr., who is retiring in late June after 30 years on the bench.
Dalrymple says Louser has a strong work ethic and background in family law and mediation services, and is well-respected by her peers.
Louser has a degree in occupational therapy from the University of North Dakota, a master's degree in organizational behavior from Minot State University and a law degree from UND. She serves on the State Bar Association's Joint Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee.
