The newest member of the South Dakota Supreme Court has taken the oath of office.
Mark Salter was sworn into the high court Monday afternoon in front of a packed Belbas Theater at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls.
Salter's colleagues tell the Argus Leader his years of experience, natural poise and attention to detail make him an ideal pick for the Supreme Court.
The 49-year-old Salter replaces Justice Glen Severson who retired in June after nine years serving the second district.
Salter has been a Second Circuit Court judge since 2013.
