BISMARCK, N.D. — A nominating committee has named three finalists for an opening on the North Dakota Supreme Court.

They are South Central District Judge James Hill, Northeast Central District Judge Jon Jensen and Northwest District Judge Robin Schmidt. Their names will be forwarded to Gov. Doug Burgum for consideration.

All three of the judges are graduates of the University of North Dakota School of Law.

The vacancy was created by the resignation of Justice Carol Kapsner.
