Correction: An article in Friday's Tribune should have said attorney Suchada Bazzelle has been appointed as a juvenile court judge in the 4th District.

Two Utah attorneys were appointed as 3rd District Court judges and one to the 4th District Court juvenile court by Gov. Jon M. Huntsman last week.

Mary Kate Toomey, Suchada P. Bazzelle and Robert P. Faust will join the 22 Salt Lake City district court judges, once approved by the Senate Judicial Confirmation Committee.

Toomey is a graduate of the Maryland School of Law and has worked as deputy counsel for the Utah State Bar's Office of Professional Conduct since October 2000.

Bazzelle's law degree was earned at Brigham Young University. A member of the Utah State bar since 1994, Bazzelle, who was appointed to the 4th District Juvenile Court, has served as an attorney for the Office of the Guardian ad Litem since 2000.

Faust received a law degree from Brigham Young University in 1982. He has had his own law practice since 1996, during which time he has served as a special assistant U.S. Attorney (since 1999).

The approval process of the judges includes the consideration of public comment, which can be submitted by contacting Jerry D. Howe in the Office of Legislative Research and General Counsel. Written comments can be sent to the Utah Capitol Complex, W210 House Building, Salt Lake City, UT 84114 by 5 p.m. Oct. 27. Statements should include the presenter's name, telephone number and mailing address.
