Governor Greg Gianforte announced the first judicial appointment of his administration Wednesday naming David Grubich to the open district court bench in Cascade County. The bench was vacated in April when the Montana Senate rejected Michele Reinhart Levine. Grubich will have to run for election in 2022 to retain his seat. Levine had said earlier in the process she would run for the district court bench in 2022 whether or not she was appointed.
