Part-time justice court judges standing for retention in 2016 are required to meet three minimum performance standards adopted by the judicial branch and enacted by the legislature.
Judge Hall met these standards:
- He participated annually in no less than 30 hours of continuing legal education for each year of his current term;
- He held no cases under advisement for more than two months; and
- He has not been the subject of any public reprimands issued by the Judicial Conduct Commission or the Utah Supreme Court during his term of office.
Based solely on compliance with these standards, the commission recommends retention for Judge Hall.
Judge Evan B. Hall was appointed to the Lewiston Justice Court in January 1992. He received a bachelor’s degree from Utah State University in Business Administration and Business Education in 1967. Judge Hall was a school teacher and coach in the Cache County School District for 31 years and has served in a variety of community leadership positions.
