Doug Hogan

Gov. Gary R. Herbert has appointed L. Douglas Hogan to fill a judicial vacancy on the Third District Court.

"Doug Hogan will be a great asset to the Third District Court," said Gov. Herbert. "He has experience and is a man of honor. I am confident he will perform his job with the utmost integrity."

Hogan has been the elected County Attorney for Tooele County since 2007. Prior to his service with Tooele County, he worked in private practice in the Law Office of L. Douglas P.C. (2000-06) and as in-house counsel to S.K. Hart Management (1999-2000).

"I am honored by the Governor’s selection and look forward to serving the citizens of the Third District," said Hogan.

Subject to confirmation by the Utah State Senate, Hogan will fill the vacancy that will result from the retirement of Judge L.A. Denver on Nov. 1, 2014.

Laura Scott

Gov. Gary R. Herbert has appointed Laura S. Scott as a judge to fill a vacancy on the Third District Court.

"I am confident Laura Scott will uphold the highest standard of the law as a judge of the Third District Court," said Gov. Herbert. "She has proven character and capabilities, and I know she will serve the Third District well."

Scott is currently a shareholder, member of the board of directors and vice president at Parsons Behle & Latimer. She has also served as an assistant general counsel to the University of Utah Office of General Counsel (1993-97).

"I consider it a great honor and privilege to be appointed by Gov. Herbert and I sincerely appreciate the confidence and trust he has shown in me," said Scott. "I also recognize the immense responsibilities that accompany this appointment and I will work extremely hard to fulfill them."

Scott received a 5.0 Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbel. She is a member of Utah Business Magazine’s Legal Elite (Business Litigation), a Utah Business magazine’s 30 Women to Watch (2012) and a Mountain States Super Lawyers, Top 100 Lawyers (2013) and Top 50 Women Lawyers (2013, 2014).

Subject to confirmation by the Utah State Senate, Scott will fill the vacancy that will result from the retirement of Judge John Paul Kennedy on Dec. 31, 2014.
