Two named to terms on Minnesota Board on Judicial Standards

Two members were named to the Board on Judicial Standards today by Gov. Tim Pawlenty.

They are Appeals Court Judge Jill Flaskamp Halbrooks, who replaces Judge Terri Stoneburner, and Douglas Fuller of Bemidji, who is reappointed to one of the four slots on the board reserved for members of the public.

They'll each serve four-year terms that expire in 2013.

Fuller, of Bemidji, is a broker with -- and owner of -- First Realty GMAC in Bemidji. He also served three terms in the Minnesota House of Representatives from 1999 to 2005.  Fuller has been a member of the Judicial Standards Board since 2005.

Halbrooks, of Minneapolis, has been on the Minnesota Court of Appeals since 1998.  Previously, she was an attorney with the Rider, Bennett, Egan and Arundel law firm in Minneapolis.

The 10-member Board on Judicial Standards investigates allegations of misconduct by Minnesota judges and referees and recommends discipline to the Minnesota Supreme Court, including censure, suspension, retirement or removal of judges.
