BOISE, Idaho — The Idaho state treasurer is appealing a district court ruling ordering her to vacate her office on the first floor of the Statehouse.
Treasurer Julie Ellsworth on Tuesday filed a notice of appeal with the Idaho Supreme Court. The district court in July sided with Republican House Speaker Scott Bedke and Republican Senate Pro Tem Brent Hill in a civil lawsuit. They want to make room for more House members and staff offices.
The court ruling cited a 2007 law allowing the Legislature to decide what is done with the first, third, and fourth floors of the building.
