The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Missouri’s Appellate Judicial Commission Wednesday night nominated a trio of candidates who could be named to sit on the Missouri Supreme Court, and one of them is a Creve Coeur attorney.
Stanley Wallach, of The Wallach Law Firm, was tapped, along with Columbia attorney Paul Wilson and Jackson County Circuit Judge Michael W. Manners, according to the paper.
Patch readers may recognize Wallach's name, as he was the attorney who represented The Shoppes of Westgate in a pair of zoning issues over the summer in Creve Coeur which paved the way for Ray's Donuts to come to town. (Work is still being done on the bakery's location).
Governor Nixon has 60 days to select one of the three for the spot on the bench. If no decision is made in that period, the commission will make the decision.
Judge William Ray Price Jr. retired effective August 1 after more than two decades on the state's highest court.
