Asst. DA Norrdin appointed to fill judicial vacancy
Gov. John Hickenlooper today appointed Anne Norrdin, a current assistant 9th District attorney, to fill a judicial vacancy in the district created by the retirement of Judge Daniel Petre.
Norrdin was one of three nominees recently named for the judgeship in the district that includes Garfield, Pitkin and Rio Blanco counties.
Norrdin has been an assistant district attorney under District Attorney Sherry Caloia since February of this year. She was previously a deputy district attorney in that office.
Prior to that, Norrdin served as a deputy district attorney in the 1st Judicial District and as a law clerk for Boulder District Court Judge Lael Montgomery.
She earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder and her law degree from the University of Oregon.
Her appointment is effective immediately.
Also in the running for the judicial appointment were Tari Williams, current Garfield County attorney, and Scott Turner, a former deputy district attorney in the 9th District who went to work for the Colorado Attorney General’s Office last year.
