The Judicial Nomination Commission has submitted the following names to Gov. Steve Bullock for consideration for appointment to the vacant judicial seat in the 13th Judicial District (Yellowstone County): 

  • Jessica Teresa Fehr

  • Donald L. Harris

  • Joseph Mathieu Raffiani

The governor must fill the position within 30 days of receipt of the nominees. Fehr, Harris and Raffiani were among seven attorneys who applied to replace the Honorable Russ Fagg, who announced in July that he is retiring effective Oct. 13.

The commission’s action comes after a 30-day public comment period. The commission also interviewed applicants. 

The position is subject to election in 2018.  The successful candidate will serve a six-year term.
