Judge Jessica Lorello, who currently sits on the Idaho Court of Appeals, has been appointed by the state Supreme Court to serve as Chief Judge for the next two years, succeeding current Chief Judge Molly Huskey.   The Court of Appeals, Idaho’s second-highest court, hears appeals assigned to it by the Supreme Court; its four judges sit in three-judge panels to hear cases.

Judge Lorello has served on the Court of Appeals since 2017 when she was appointed by former Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter. Previously, she worked as an attorney in private practice and at the Idaho Attorney General’s Office. Judge Lorello serves on the Idaho Law Foundation’s Law Related Education Committee, is a founding and current member of Attorneys for Civic Education, and is active in a number of civic education programs, while also teaching as an adjunct professor at the University of Idaho College of Law.
