GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - A Great Falls attorney has been selected to replace Cascade County District Court Judge Julie Macek, who is retiring.

The Great Falls Tribune reports (https://gftrib.com/1oPmrZa ) that Gov. Steve Bullock announced Tuesday that Elizabeth Best would take over when Macek steps down later this month. Macek announced she was retiring due to health reasons in December.

Best, a one-time Montana Supreme Court candidate, is serving out the rest of Macek’s term but will have to campaign for re-election to keep her seat.

Best is a trial lawyer in Great Falls and has been practicing law since 1981.

She became the Montana Trial Lawyers Association’s first ever woman awarded Trial Lawyer of the Year in 2008. She served on the organization’s board for 15 years.
