BISMARCK, N.D. — The North Dakota Supreme Court says six lawyers have applied for an open judgeship in the Southeast Judicial District.

The vacancy is due to the retirement of Judge John Paulson.

Five of the applicants are from North Dakota: Lyle Bopp of Cogswell, Troy LeFevre of Jamestown; Jordan Moe of Jamestown, Steven Simonson of Fargo and Jerod Tufte of Dawson. Cherie Clark, of Moorhead, Minnesota, also has applied.

A Judicial Nominating Committee is to interview the applicants the week of June 16 in Jamestown. The group eventually will make recommendations to Gov. Jack Dalrymple, who will make the appointment.
