Utah Senate Requests Public Comment on Supreme Court Nominee

The Utah Senate Judicial Confirmation Committee is seeking public comment on John A. Pearce, who was recently appointed to fill a vacancy on the Utah Supreme Court.

Those who desire to comment should contact Mike Christensen at the Office of Legislative Research and General Counsel, Utah State Capitol Campus, House Building, Suite W210, PO Box 145210, Salt Lake City, Utah 84114-5210, by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, November 24th, 2015. All statements should include the respondent’s name, telephone number, and mailing address.

The Senate Judicial Confirmation Committee will hold a public hearing in the near future, then issue a positive or negative recommendation to the full senate.

If confirmed, Judge Pearce will fill a vacancy resulting from the August resignation of Justice Jill Parrish who has been confirmed as a federal judge for the Utah district.
