Case Assignment

General Case Assignment Information

As an Article III judge, Judge Winmill handles felony criminal matters, death penalty cases, and Class A misdemeanors if the parties choose not to consent to a magistrate judge. Judge Nye and Judge Winmill are randomly assigned all felony criminal matters.

For civil cases, Judge Nye and Judge Winmill are randomly assigned approximately one-half of all civil matters. Additionally, if a party requests reassignment of a civil matter to a district judge after having been assigned a magistrate judge, the matter will be randomly assigned to either Judge Nye or Judge Winmill.  

Finally, in bankruptcy appellate matters, if a party objects to the matter being heard by the Ninth Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel, Judge Nye and Judge Winmill are randomly assigned to hear appeals from the bankruptcy court.

Divisional Offices

Judge Winmill's Chambers is in Boise. However, Judge Winmill travels to the divisional offices on a regular basis. Two weeks of each month, Judge Winmill hears matters in Boise. The other two weeks are spent in Pocatello and Coeur d'Alene. Judge Winmill's regular travel schedule may be dictated, however, by trial settings, hearings, or other matters, and is subject to change.
