GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A state district judge in Grand Forks is recovering after open-heart surgery.

Judge Joel Medd turns 66 next month. The Grand Forks Herald reports (http://bit.ly/13DMd6N ) that he had a triple-bypass operation on March 21 and is now recuperating at home.

Trial Court Administrator Merylee Castellanos says Medd is doing well but will be out about five to six weeks. She says other judges will pick up some of his caseload, and a surrogate judge might be brought in to help.
