Milwaukee Circuit Court Appointee Pocan

A Doyle appointment, news released on Friday afternoon before the July 4th weekend.

Governor Jim Doyle announced today the appointment of William Pocan to the Milwaukee County Circuit Court. Pocan will fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Michael P. Sullivan. Pocan will begin serving July 17, 2006 for a term to end July 31, 2007.

"William Pocan has the intellect and temperament necessary for a judge," Governor Doyle said. "His 22 years of varied trial and appellate practice make him an excellent candidate. He is also highly regarded as a leading advocate in consumer protection law, which will add diversity to the Milwaukee bench."

[Pocan] has extensive trial and appellate experience in the area of consumer law, as well as in the areas of family and civil law.

Pocan was a founding member of the East Side Condominium Owners Association and a founding board member of the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center Advocates.

As usual, the interesting stuff is in the last paragraph.
