Anchorage Assistant District Attorney Jason Gist will be the next member of the Kenai Superior Court.
Gist, who has been living and practicing law in Alaska for 14 years, was appointed by Gov. Bill Walker Wednesday. Gist was one of four candidates whose names were forwarded by the Alaska Judicial Council to the governor earlier this month. Roberta Erwin, Daniel Schally and Shawn Traini were also nominated. Gist, who will replace retiring Superior Court Judge Charles Huegelet, is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, Boalt Hall School of Law. He clerked for Alaska’s Chief Justice Alexander O. Bryner, worked in private practice, and has been an Assistant District Attorney for the State of Alaska since 2008.
