Brown County Circuit Court’s newest judge is Beau Liegeois, who fills a vacancy created when Brown County’s longest serving judge retired.
Gov. Tony Evers announced Liegeois’ appointment Friday. Liegeois fills Judge William Atkinson’s vacancy. Atkinson retired in August after sitting on the bench for 28 years.
Liegeois is a lifelong Brown County resident and Valparaiso University Law School graduate. He’s been an assistant district attorney with Brown County for 11 years. Liegeois unsuccessfully ran as the Democratic challenger to U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Green Bay, in 2018.
