Three out of the nine finalists to fill the vacant seats on the Iowa Supreme Court graduated from the University of Iowa and a fourth is a current UI law professor.

They were narrowed down from 60 applicants to fill the spots left empty after the November vote ousted three justices, who left the bench Dec. 31.

John Gray of Sioux City, Arthur Gamble, and Thomas Waterman of Pleasant Valley, all graduated from the UI. Angela Onwuachi-Willig of Grinnell is a UI law professor.

According to a press release, Gov. Terry Branstad has 30 days to appoint the justices.
