Hubert Utterback (1932 - 1933)
Served on the Iowa
Supreme Court from December 5, 1932, when he was issued a certificate of
election to fill a supposed vacancy, until April 16, 1933, when it was
judicially determined that no vacancy on the court had existed, and therefore
his election to the Supreme Court was a nullity.

for a period as Municipal Judge in the city of Des Moines, and from 1915 to

County. He was later elected to the House of Representatives in Congress where
he served one term.
