Gov. David Ige has appointed Dan Gluck, the director of the Hawaii State Ethics Commission, to fill a seat on the state Intermediate Court of Appeals.

Gluck’s appointment is subject to Senate confirmation. He would take the seat of retired Associate Judge Derrick Chan.

“I am humbled and honored by Governor Ige’s selection, and I look forward to working with the Senate over the next few weeks. I have been extraordinarily fortunate to work with amazing colleagues at the Ethics Commission for the last five years; I am sorry to be leaving the office, but I am eager to join the Judiciary,” Gluck said in a written statement.

Gluck has worked at the ethics commission since 2016.

He was previously a legal director at the American Civil Liberties Union of Hawaii. He earned his juris doctor from Harvard Law School.

Ige selected Gluck from a list of six nominees put forward by the Judicial Selection Commission.
