Winding Down Another Supreme Court Term

The Associated Press

Missouri Supreme Court Judge Paul Wilson took over last week the state’s chief justice, beginning a two-year term atop Missouri’s judicial system.

Wilson succeeds George Draper, who stays on the court. Missouri’s chief justice position rotates among the seven members of the court.

Wilson is a Jefferson City native who was a longtime aide to former Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon, both in the governor’s office and when Nixon served as attorney general. Nixon appointed Wilson to temporarily fill a vacancy on the Cole County Circuit Court in 2010 and, after Wilson lost election to that court, Nixon appointed him to the Supreme Court in December 2012. Voters retained Wilson for a 12-year term on the Supreme Court in November 2014.
