One of three local attorneys will soon become a judge in Iowa's Seventh District. A judicial commission has about two weeks to make a decision to fill a vacancy.

They nominated Steven Berger, who works for the Scott County Attorney's Office, Derek Jones, a public defender in Davenport, and Korie Shippee, from the Muscatine County Attorney's Office. 

The vacancy was created in mid-July when the governer appointed Judge Mark Fowler to the District Court. The Seventh District includes Cedar, Clinton, Jackson, Muscatine, and Scott counties.
