Marner was retained to the Pima County Superior Court with 77.7 percent of the vote on November 4, 2014.[3]


The Judicial Performance Review Commission provides Arizona voters with an evaluation of each judge up for retention. The commission votes on whether a candidate meets or does not meet the JPR standards. Each judge is assessed on their legal ability, integrity, communication skills, judicial temperament and administrative performance.[4]

The commission voted that Marner met the JPR standards. The vote was 29-0 in favor of retention.[3]


Marner earned his B.A. from the University of Arizona and his J.D. from the California Western School of Law.[5]


Before joining the court, Marner was an attorney with Shultz and Rollins, Ltd. from 1997 to 2012. He previously practiced law in the state of Washington, where he worked in the King County and the Spokane County prosecutor's offices. Marner also served for six years in the U.S. Marine Corps, where he did a tour of duty in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait during Operation Desert Storm.[1][6]
