Clint S. Judkins, of Tremonton, the presiding judge in 1st District Court in Logan, plans to retire early next year, the governor’s office confirmed Friday.

Gov. Gary Herbert’s spokesman, Nathan McDonald, said Judkins submitted a letter dated Aug. 29 announcing his intentions to retire, effective Feb. 1.

In his letter, Judkins called it a “very difficult decision.”

“I was appointed by Gov. Bangerter in October of 1998 and for these many years have been privileged to associate and work with people who I consider to be the best on Earth in a state judicial system that I consider to be unsurpassed by none,” he wrote. “I will truly miss my association with everyone with whom I have been privileged to work with.”

The Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice is currently accepting letters of interest until Oct. 12 for those who would like to be considered to fill the position.

McDonald said a nominating committee will select five names to be considered by the Utah governor, who will make the final selection.

Judkins became a judge in 1st District Court in July 1996. He received his law degree from the University of Utah College of Law in 1972 and worked in private practice in Tremonton prior to his appointment to the bench.

He served as the Tremonton city attorney for 16 years.

Judkins, who is now the presiding judge in the 1st District, has also served as the presiding judge in the 1st Circuit and and also served on the Board of Circuit Court Judges and the Board of District Court Judges.
