PIERRE (AP) -- Gov. Dennis Daugaard has appointed Robert Mandel and Craig Pfeifle to serve as circuit court judges in South Dakota's Seventh Circuit Court.

Mandel and Pfeifle, both of Rapid City, will fill vacancies caused by the recent retirements of judges John Delaney and A.P. "Pete" Fuller. The Seventh Circuit includes Custer, Fall River, Pennington, and Shannon counties.

Pfeifle, a Sioux Falls native, is a shareholder and managing member of Lynn, Jackson, Shultz and Lebrun. Mandel, a Chicago native, is the supervisory assistant U.S. Attorney heading up the Rapid City office.

Both will assume their positions as circuit court judges no later than January 2012.

The governor announced the appointments on Tuesday.
