Davenport judge among five Iowa appeals court nominees


Thirteen Iowans, including a Davenport judge, applied to the state Judicial Appointments Commission to fill the vacancy on the Iowa Court of Appeals that arose after the nomination of the Justice David May of the Iowa Supreme Court.

The nominating committee met on Monday to interview candidates for the vacant post. After that, the commission deliberated and selected a list of five candidates from the group of candidates and handed the list to the governor. The nominees are:

Tyler Buller, Johnston

Judge Alan Heavens, Garnavillo

Judge Patrick McElyea, Davenport

William Miller, Des Moines

Judge Amy Moore, Ames

The governor has 30 days to appoint the new judge.
