BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Supreme Court will retain a state district court judgeship in Bismarck.

South Central District Judge Sonna Anderson is retiring at the end of the month due to health reasons.

When a judge leaves the bench, justices are required by law to decide whether the judgeship should be retained, moved, or eliminated.

The Supreme Court concluded that keeping the Bismarck-based judgeship is “necessary for effective judicial administration” in the South Central District.
