BISMARCK—North Dakota Supreme Court Justice Lisa Fair McEvers will seek re-election this year, she announced Thursday, Jan. 18.

McEvers is running for a full 10-year term on the court after winning an uncontested race in 2016 to fill out the final two years of former Justice Mary Maring's term. A former assistant state's attorney in Cass County, state labor commissioner and district judge, McEvers was first appointed to the state Supreme Court in 2014 by then-Gov. Jack Dalrymple after Maring's retirement.

"It has been my honor to serve on the court these past four years and I look forward to the opportunity to continue serving the people of this great state for another term," McEvers said in a statement.
