BISMARCK, N.D. — Gov. Jack Dalrymple has appointed three lawyers to newly created North Dakota district court judgeships.
Dalrymple on Monday announced the appointments of Kirsten Sjue, Daniel El-Dweek and Rhonda Ehlis.
Sjue and El-Dweek will be judges in the Northwest Judicial District. Sjue will serve in Williston, while El-Dweek will be chambered in Watford City.
Sjue is the current Williams County assistant state’s attorney, and El-Dweek is a supervising attorney in the Williston Public Defender’s Office.
Dalrymple appointed Ehlis to the Southwest Judicial District, which is chambered in Dickinson. Ehlis currently serves as Stark County assistant state’s attorney.
The North Dakota Legislature this year approved the establishment of four new judgeships to help the state’s district courts manage their caseloads.
The lawyers graduated from the University of North Dakota School of Law.
