Superior Court Associate Judge David A. Wiseman, the first non-indigenous judge to capture a retention election, will submit again to the retention election on Nov. 6, Saipan Tribune learned yesterday.
A reliable Judiciary source disclosed that today, Tuesday, Wiseman will file his notice of intent to be on the ballot for retention at the Commission on Election in Susupe.
Saipan Tribune contacted Wiseman for comment, but he could not be reached.
Wiseman is currently the longest serving judge in the Superior Court. He will be 12 years serving on the bench in March 2013.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has appointed Wiseman for 10 consecutive years as a designated judge for the U.S. District Court for the NMI.
Wiseman's first six-year term as a judge expired in March 2007. In November 2005, voters retained him to serve as a judge until March 2013.
Also up for this year's retention election are acting chief justice Alexandro C. Castro and associate judge Perry B. Inos.
Castro and Inos have yet to confirm whether they are interested to seek retention.
