Iowa Supreme Court selects Chief Justice Susan Christensen for a second term

by Rox Laird | January 12, 2021

Chief Justice Susan Christensen has been selected by the members of the Iowa Supreme Court for a second term, the Judicial Branch announced Jan. 8.

At 10 a.m. Wednesday, Christensen will deliver the Condition of the Judiciary address to a joint session of the Iowa General Assembly in the Iowa House Chamber. Iowa Public Television will broadcast the speech live on Iowa PBS WORLD.3 and livestream the speech on iowapbs.org, Facebook and YouTube.

Christensen has served on the Court since 2018. She was first selected as chief justice in February 2020, following the announced retirement of Justice David Wiggins, who had been acting chief since the November 2019 death of Chief Justice Mark Cady.

Christensen’s initial term as chief extended only until Jan. 8 under transition provisions of 2019 legislation that set the terms of chief justices for two years. She will now serve a full two-year term under that legislation, and may be reselected for a subsequent term.
