BISMARCK, North Dakota — South Central District Judge Donald Jorgensen is ending a three-decade career behind the bench.

Thursday is Jorgensen's last day on the job. He's calling it a career a bit early — his term runs through the end of the year. Gov. Jack Dalrymple will name a replacement. Nine attorneys have applied for the job.

Jorgensen was born in Kenmare in 1944 and is a graduate of the University of North Dakota law school. He served in the Southwest Judicial District before transferring to the South Central District in 1995. He was first elected a district judge in 1984.
