A New Law Changes Oklahoma’s Supreme Court Districts

News

Thursday, Stitt signed House Bill 2366, a measure ending the now nine judicial districts on the Oklahoma Supreme Court. The newly-signed legislation will expand the borders, so justices can be selected in Oklahoma’s five Congressional Districts. It will also allow four justices to be selected “at large”, meaning they can live anywhere in the state. The bill was sponsored to expand the applicant pool that can serve. No justices on the court currently will be affected. The changes to the court justices will not take effect until July of 2020.
