IDAHO SUPREME COURT DECISIONS (1974-2011)

Bone v Andrus, 96 Idaho 291, 527 P.2d 783 (1974)
Shortly after he was sworn into the Idaho State Bar in 1974, Mr. Greenfield took his first job as a lawyer working as an Assistant Attorney General for the state of Idaho. He was soon assigned a case involving the honorable Cecil D. Andrus,  the new governor of the state at that time. The case involved an allegedly incorrect decision of Gov. Andrus to replace a county commissioner in Nez Perce County, who had never been elected but had merely been appointed by a lame duck governor. The county commissioner, a Democrat, had been  re-elected in November 1970 but suddenly died in December of that year. Gov. Andrus reasoned that he had the authority to replace the deceased commissioner with a new one of his choice rather than accepting the appointee of the previous governor who had just been defeated by Gov. Andrus in the 1970 election. Gov. Andrus was then sued for “usurpation of office” by Republican Party officials.

Gov. Andrus won the law suit in State District Court in Boise but the matter was appealed to the Idaho Supreme Court. The appeal was heard in   Lewiston in 1974. John Greenfield was selected to perform the legal analysis and write the appellate brief for Gov. Andrus. He did not argue the case to the Idaho Supreme Court because this role was appropriately reserved for the State Attorney General himself, W. Anthony Park. The case was won by Gov. Andrus on the legal theories Mr. Greenfield had developed and discussed in his appellate briefing. This was Mr. Greenfield’s earliest legal work involving an Idaho Supreme Court appeal, and occurred only several months after he had become an Idaho lawyer.
