Iowa appeals court judge retiring after decade


DES MOINES (AP) -- Iowa Court of Appeals Judge John Miller of Burlington is retiring after a decade on the panel.

Miller announced Monday he would retire July 23 after about 10 years on the court.

Since getting his law degree from the University of Iowa in 1975, the 66-year-old Miller has held a number of positions as a lawyer and judge in the state. Before joining the Court of Appeals, he worked more than 18 years as a district court judge.

Gov. Chet Culver will fill the court opening, choosing from among three nominees submitted by the State Judicial Nominating Commission.
