Gov. Scott Walker has appointed a trial attorney and an assistant prosecutor to two vacancies on the Milwaukee County Circuit Court.
Walker on Thursday announced that he had tapped Cynthia Davis and Michael Hanrahan to the bench.

Davis has been an assistant district attorney in Milwaukee County since 2011. She also teaches criminal pre-trial practice at Marquette University Law School.
Davis previously worked as an associate for Foley & Lardner LLP and was a clerk for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser. She earned her law degree from Marquette University Law School.
Hanrahan will fill a vacancy left by Judge Mel Flanagan, who will retire in March, according to a news release. Hanrahan is a shareholder with Fox, O’Neill & Shannon SC, where he has been a partner since 2001. He earned his law degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School.
