Hilder gets nod from Senate judicial committee

By Patrick Parkinson, Of the Record staff

A Senate judicial committee Wednesday voted 3-2 to recommend 3rd District Court Judge Robert Hilder for a Utah Court of Appeals post.

The narrow margin saw Republican Senators Chris Buttars and Michael Waddoups vote against Hilder. Members of the Senate Judicial Confirmation Committee who supported Hilder included Republicans Greg Bell and Lyle Hillyard, and Democrat Mike Dmitrich.

The full Senate must still approve Hilder’s confirmation and is expected to vote Nov. 19.

Hilder is a Snyderville Basin resident who has presided over several high-profile cases in Summit County as a judge in the 3rd District. Today Hilder adjudicates about 20 percent of the civil lawsuits filed in the county.
