Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter's office says they are a little behind on conducting interviews for an open seat on the Idaho Supreme Court due to the Republican governor's recent back surgeries.
Justice Daniel Eismann announced earlier this year he will retire from the state's highest court at the end of August. The Idaho Judicial Council has since sent the governor's office four candidates to consider as a replacement, but Otter has not yet been able to make a selection.
