The Court of Appeals hears cases assigned to it by the Idaho Supreme Court. The only exceptions to this jurisdiction are capital murder convictions and appeals from the Idaho Public Utilities Commission and the Idaho Industrial Commission (which administers the state's workers' compensation laws[3]), which must be heard by the Supreme Court.[4]


As of January 1, 2009, the Court of Appeals includes four judges (one chief judge and three associate judges), and cases are heard by three-judge panels.

The current composition of the court is:

  • Chief Judge Sergio A. Gutierrez
  • Judge Karen L. Lansing
  • Judge David W. Gratton
  • Judge John M. Melanson
