Anderson gets ‘Court’ appoinment

Wednesday, July 14, 2021

CAEDC Executive Director Bill Anderson has been appointed to the Grievance Commission of the Supreme Court of Iowa. He will serve a three-year term which will end June 30, 2024.

Anderson currently serves on the 3A Judicial Nominating Commission and was appointed by Governor Kim Reynolds. Fellow Cherokee residents Jason Cook and John Loughlin also serve on the 3A Judicial Nominating Commission as attorney elected members.

Anderson expressed his excitement in the recent appointment. “I was approached by a friend who is an attorney regarding serving on the grievance commission. After doing my research and visiting with other attorney friends I decided to apply.” Anderson continued, “I have thoroughly enjoyed serving on the judicial nominating commission and look forward to this new endeavor.”

The Grievance Commission has panels of four lawyers and one lay person drawn from the commission membership to hear evidence of alleged ethical complaints against Iowa attorneys and determine whether or not the attorneys have violated ethical principles. In the event a hearing panel finds that an ethical violation has occurred, the panel then must recommend the nature and extend of response to the violation.
