MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker has appointed a Milwaukee County judge to the Wisconsin Court of Appeals.
Walker said Wednesday that Judge William Brash III will replace Justice Rebecca Bradley, who was recently appointed to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Walker cites Brash for his “commitment to the Constitution and the rule of law.”
Brash has served as a Milwaukee County judge since 2001 in the criminal and civil divisions, and has served as presiding judge for civil/probate courts. Before becoming a circuit court judge, Brash was an attorney in private practice and a small business owner, and served as a municipal judge for over 12 years.
Brash has a law degree from Marquette and an undergraduate degree from St. Norbert College in Wisconsin. He leaves his current judgeship on Dec. 11.
