Iowa Supreme Court Justice Bruce Zager Retiring

DES MOINES, Iowa  —  Iowa’s highest court will soon have a vacancy.

Justice Bruce B. Zager of Waterloo announced he plans to retire from the bench in September.

Zager has served in the Iowa Supreme Court since 2011.  He’s spent 19 years in his career serving as a judge.

“Justice Zager has been a very important part of the supreme court and he will be missed both as a clear-thinking, deliberative judge and as a good friend,” Chief Justice Mark Cady said as in a release after Zager’s announced.

The State Judicial Nominating Commission will forward a list of three nominees to the Governor after Zager’s retirement.
