DES MOINES, Iowa – Governor Kim Reynolds on Monday appointed Tamra Roberts as District Court Judge in Iowa’s 7th Judicial District to replace Judge Nancy Tabor who retired. The district includes Cedar, Clinton, Jackson, Muscatine, and Scott counties.

Roberts served over one year as an assistant attorney general in the Iowa Attorney General’s office representing the Child Support Recovery Unit of the Iowa Department of Human Services. She worked over six-and-a-half years in private practice, including the last five-and-a-half years in her hometown of Tipton.

Roberts also served as assistant county attorney for Cedar County for three years and was appointed a magistrate judge in Cedar County, serving in that capacity for the last five-and-a-half years.

She earned her B.A. from Central College in Pella, and graduated with a J.D. from William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, Minn.

The district judicial nominating commission that consists of five members appointed by the Governor, five members elected by members of the Iowa Bar, and Judge Mark Cleve who chairs the commission nominated Roberts and Michael Motto of Davenport for the vacancy on July 24, 2019. Motto has his own private practice and serves as a magistrate judge in Clinton County. Reynolds, by law, had 30 days to make a decision on who to appoint between the two nominees.

Roberts was Reynolds’ 24rd appointment to the district court bench. She has also appointed two judges to the Iowa Court of Appeals, and two justices to the Iowa Supreme Court.
