Gov. Scott Walker has appointed an attorney from the Wisconsin Department of Justice to fill a spot on the Dane County Circuit Court bench.
Walker on Friday appointed attorney Clayton Kawski to replace Judge David Flanagan, who is retiring.
Kawski has been an assistant attorney general since 2010 and is deputy director of the DOJ’s special litigation and appeals unit. Before that, Kawski practiced with Michael Best & Friedrich in Madison and was a clerk for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser.
Kawski earned his law degree from the Northern Illinois University School of Law in DeKalb, Ill.Follow @erikastrebel
