Court of Appeals Chief Judge Danilson to retire in January

By: Rox Laird on November 14th, 2018

David Danilson, chief judge of the Iowa Court of Appeals, has announced his retirement effective Jan. 4, 2019. Danilson said he hopes to continue to serve as a senior judge on the appeals court after retiring, according to a press release from the Iowa Judicial Branch.

Danilson has served the Iowa judiciary for more than 30 years. Before joining the appeals court, Danilson was a judicial magistrate, district associate judge and district court judge in the Second Judicial District. He was appointed to the nine-member Court of Appeals in 2009 and selected chief judge in 2013.

The process for selecting Danilson’s replacement on the court will begin in early December. The State Judicial Nominating Commission will interview applicants and forward three candidates to Gov. Kim Reynolds, who will make the appointment.

The judges of the Court of Appeals will select a new chief judge.

The Court of Appeals reviews civil and criminal actions, post-conviction proceedings, and small-claims actions transferred to it by the Iowa Supreme Court. A decision of the Court of Appeals is final unless the Supreme Court grants further review.
