Washington District Judge Michael R. Mullins has been selected as one of nine nominees of which three will become judges on the state Supreme Court. Judge Mullins was one of 60 applicants interviewed by The Judicial Nominating Committee this week. During his interview, he was asked about his social work, how being a District Judge would help him if selected to the Supreme Court, what it is like to work with a small budget, and his work on sentencing guidelines in the state. Judge Mullins was appointed as a District Judge in 2002. The vacancies came from a non-retention vote in last November’s election. Governor Terry Branstad has 30 days to make an appointment to the Supreme Court.
