The Wisconsin Supreme Court and Court of Appeals have a new clerk.
Chief Justice Pat Roggensack announced in a news release on Thursday that the court had appointed Walworth County Clerk of Court Sheila Reiff to fill the position.
Reiff, of Elkhorn, has been Walworth County clerk of circuit court since 1995 and has worked for the clerk’s office since 1980 as a deputy clerk and a court-calendar clerk.
She is also register in probate, probate registrar, probate commissioner and clerk of juvenile court for Walworth County.
The post was previously held by Diane Fremgen, whom Director of State Courts Randy Koschnick appointed earlier this year to be his deputy director of court operations.
Fremgen will continue as the acting clerk of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals until Reiff starts her new role in the coming weeks, according to the news release.
Fremgen has been the clerk of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals since 2012. Before that, she was the clerk of circuit court in Winnebago County for 15 years.Follow @erikastrebel
