Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon today announced Nathaniel Hibben will fill the vacancy left by the retirement of Judge Randal Arp. Hibben previously served as a public defender and as Deputy Goshen County Attorney.
Gordon cited Hibben’s work with the state bar, and his experience in civil, financial and agricultural law in announcing the appointment.

Hibben has lived in Torrington with his wife and four children since 2009.
