The state Supreme Court has appointed Denis Moran as interim director of state courts.
Moran was director of state courts from 1978 to 2003, when he retired. He will reprise the role starting June 4, according to a news release.
One of his responsibilities will be to recruit a new director of state courts. Former Director of State Courts John Voelker left the court system in July 2014 to become deputy secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds.
Moran was the court system’s first director of state courts after the court reorganization of 1978. He is only one of two people that have held the position.
