Schreier resigning federal judgeship, giving Biden administration another nomination
Her run on the bench has lasted nearly a quarter-century
U.S. District Court Judge Karen Schreier has notified the White House that she intends to step down from her post in the Federal District Court for South Dakota.
That vacancy will allow the Biden administration to fill the position, as well as the one created when Judge Jeffrey Viken took senior status on Oct. 1, 2021. Like Viken, Schreier plans to take senior status, said Matt Thelen, the clerk of courts for the district.
“It is my intention to continue to render substantial judicial service as a senior judge,” Schreier wrote in her resignation letter.
