GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - One of the five district judges in North Dakota’s Northeast Central Judicial District says she will resign this year.

Judge Sonja Clapp on Tuesday announced her decision to resign Dec. 1. Clapp was elected judge in 2004 and re-elected in 2010.

The district oversees Grand Forks and Nelson counties.

Clapp’s resignation letter submitted to Gov. Jack Dalrymple and Chief Justice Gerald VandeWalle did not cite reasons for her resignation.

Before being elected to the bench, Clapp served as assistant state’s attorney for Grand Forks County from 1988 to 2004.
