Last Friday, Gov. Kim Reynolds announced that she selected Matthew McDermott to serve on the Iowa Supreme Court. McDermott, an attorney at Belin McCormick, P.C. Law Firm in Des Moines, is the governor’s fourth appointment to the High Court. McDermott replaces Justice David Wiggins, who retired from the bench last month. McDermott is a University of Iowa graduate who earned his law degree from the University of California-Berkeley in 2003. He was chosen for the court over two other finalists: David May, who is an Iowa Court of Appeals Judge in Polk City and Mary Chicchelly, who is a district court judge in the Sixth Judicial District out of Cedar Rapids.
