485.12 Vacancy.

Vacancies in the office of the court administrator shall be filled by appointment by the senior judge, of the county where there is more than one judge therein; in judicial districts containing more than one county and having more than one judge therein, such appointment be made by the resident judge in said county, or, if there be no resident judge, by the next nearest judge of said district; and by the judge of the district court in judicial districts having only one judge.

The appointee shall give the bond and take the oath required by law, and shall hold office for the balance of such entire term for which the appointee shall be appointed, and until a successor qualifies. In case any such court administrator is adjudged insane, the judge shall appoint a competent person to act as court administrator in the court administrator's place until the court administrator shall be duly declared restored to sanity. The person so appointed shall take the oath and give the bond required by law of court administrators of the district court, and shall be entitled to the fees and emoluments of the office during the time the appointee shall so act, and the appointee's acts shall have the same force and effect as if performed by such court administrator.
