GRAFTON, N.D. (AP) - Grafton-based state District Judge Richard Geiger has announced his retirement effective Oct.1.

Geiger has served as a judge in the Northeast Judicial District since 1995.

The North Dakota Supreme Court will decide whether the judgeship should be retained, moved, or eliminated. It would be filled by appointment of the governor.

Geiger was initially elected a district judge in 1994. He previously served as county judge of Walsh, Pembina, and Cavalier counties starting in 1987. Before that, he was in private legal practice in Grafton for about eight years following his graduation from the University of North Dakota law school.
