District Associate Judge Ahlers of Fort Dodge appointed to Iowa Court of Appeals

by Rox Laird | December 3, 2019

Gov. Kim Reynolds appointed Paul Ahlers of Fort Dodge to the Iowa Court of Appeals, replacing Judge Amanda Potterfield, who will retire in December.

Ahlers is a District Associate judge in Judicial Election District 2B. He previously practiced law in Spencer, Fort Dodge and Webster City, and with Travelers Insurance Companies in St. Paul, Minn.

Ahlers is a graduate of Iowa State University and the University of Iowa College of Law.

The governor chose Ahlers for the appeals court opening from among three nominees selected by the 17-member State Judicial Nominating Commission.

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.
