Bettendorf Judge Named District Chief


By Rachel Begle

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A district court judge from Bettendorf has been named chief judge of the 7th Judicial District which includes five eastern Iowa counties.

The Iowa Supreme Court says in a statement released Thursday that it has named Judge Marlita A. Greve chief judge of the district which includes Cedar, Clinton, Jackson, Muscatine, and Scott counties.

She succeeds Judge Bobbi Alpers who will retire April 4.

The chief judge supervises judicial officers and court employees in the district, set the times and places of holding court, designates presiding judges, and serves on the judicial council, which advises the supreme court on administrative matters affecting the trial courts.

Greve also will continue to preside over cases.

She was appointed to the bench in 2006 after practicing as a trial lawyer.
