Press Release

Location: Juneau, AK

Governor Sean Parnell today announced the appointment of Judge Jane Kauvar to the Fairbanks Superior Court.

Judge Kauvar has served the District Court in Fairbanks since 1981. In that role, she has also served temporarily as a Superior Court Judge in Fairbanks, Kenai, and Bethel. She has served as a Fairbanks Juvenile Treatment Court Judge, and currently serves as a magistrate training judge. Prior to her appointment to the bench, Judge Kauvar served as a prosecutor and defense attorney.

"Judge Kauvar has been a strong servant in the Fairbanks courtroom," said Governor Parnell. "Her experience and skills have prepared her well for this new assignment in the Superior Court."

Judge Kauvar was also a member of the Commission on Judicial Conduct and has volunteered with local and youth swimming, soccer, and running events and programs.

In Alaska, the Superior Courts are trial courts for both civil and criminal cases. They also serve as appellate courts for cases in the district courts and some administrative agencies. Superior Courts hear cases involving children and vulnerable adults, domestic relations, and property matters.
