Wisconsin lawmaker appointed to Court of Appeals

Madison, WI-Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle has appointed State Representative Gary Sherman to a seat on the Wisconsin Court of Appeals for the 4th District. Sherman will replace Burnie Bridge who will retire from the Court of Appeals in January of 2010.[1]

In announcing Sherman's appointment, Governor Doyle stated: "I am pleased to appoint Gary Sherman to the District IV Court of Appeals. Gary is a great legal mind who will bring his broad experience to the bench. I am confident he will be an excellent judge.” When reacting to the announcement, Sherman said: "I have been involved in many divergent aspects of the profession for more than 36 years and all of that experience has helped prepare me for this new challenge. I am grateful to Governor Doyle, and all of the many people who supported me, for this opportunity. I will never forget that the business of courts is trying to solve the real problems of real people.”[1]

Sherman is currently the State Representative for Wisconsin's 74th District based in Northwest Wisconsin. Before being a State Representative Sherman was a practicing Attorney licensed in Wisconsin first practicing in 1974 and still practicing to this date.[1]

There will be a special election planned to determine Sherman's successor to his assembly seat[1]
