ND Supreme Court justice announces resignation
The resignation is effective July 31. Kapsner was appointed to the bench in 1998 and elected to 10-year terms in 2000 and 2010.
Burgum will appoint Kapsner’s successor and convene a judicial nominating committee to interview candidates for the job. Kapsner has three years remaining on her term.
Burgum praised Kapsner’s “impeccable record of service” to the state and the legal profession.
“In addition to being a brilliant attorney and jurist, she established herself as a leader in the local and state bar associations and a wonderful mentor to attorneys growing in their careers,” he said in a statement. “We are deeply grateful for her significant contributions to our state’s legal system.”
