Jerome Native Sworn In on State's Highest Court
Former Idaho attorney general and Jerome County native Jim Jones is preparing to take a seat on the Idaho Supreme Court.
Jones ran unopposed for the spot on Idaho's highest court. He'll replace Justice Wayne Kidwell, who's retiring after a six-year term.
It's the first time in years that Idaho has elected a Supreme Court justice. Recent replacements have been appointees.
Jones has been practicing law in the Boise area since his term as state attorney general ended.
