PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard says he will appoint circuit court Judge Mark Salter to the South Dakota Supreme Court.
The governor said Thursday he will name Salter, of Sioux Falls, to replace Justice Glen Severson, who will retire in June after nine years as a member of the high court.
Salter has been a judge in the 2nd Judicial Circuit since 2013. He is the presiding judge for the Minnehaha County Veteran’s Treatment Court.
Salter will be the 51st member of the South Dakota Supreme Court. Daugaard says Salter is a “brilliant legal mind.”
The 49-year-old Salter was born in Huron and got his law degree from the University of South Dakota School of Law in 1993.
