BISMARCK – North Dakota Supreme Court Justice Lisa Fair McEvers said Wednesday she will run in the November election for the final two years of the term to which she was appointed by Gov. Jack Dalrymple in November 2013.

Fair McEvers was seated on the Supreme Court in January 2014, filling the shoes of retiring Justice Mary Muehlen Maring, who stepped down after serving six years of her 10-year term.

Fair McEvers worked in court administration for seven years before attending the University of North Dakota School of Law, earning her law degree in 1997.

She served as a law clerk for the North Dakota Supreme Court in 1997-98 and worked in private practice from 1998 until 2001, when she became an assistant state’s attorney in Cass County.

Then-Gov. John Hoeven appointed Fair McEvers state labor commissioner in 2005 and to a judgeship in 2010 in the East Central Judicial District. She was elected to that post in 2012.
