Gina Colletti has been sworn in as the Eastern District of Wisconsin’s new clerk of court.

Chief Judge Pamela Pepper privately administered the oath to Colletti on Monday. A press release said the two both wore masks and stood more than six feet apart.

Colletti replaces Stephen Dries, who was appointed a magistrate judge for the district in April. She had been serving as the Waukesha County clerk of court since 2018. Before that, she had worked as a case administrator for U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelmann for a year. She also spent several years as a legal assistant at Horizons Law Group in Brookfield and Milwaukee-based O’Neil, Cannon, Hollman, DeJong & Laing.

As clerk of court, Colletti is the most senior non-judicial officer for the Eastern District, supporting five authorized district judges, three full-time magistrate judges and three recalled magistrate judges.

She also manages about 40 clerk’s office staff, the court’s budget, information technology and facilities.

In a Zoom meeting on Monday with her new staff, Colletti said she was happy to be back at the federal court and that it feels as if she never left.
