Stanley Wallach '92 Selected as Finalist for Missouri Supreme Court

From CBS St. Louis:

A Missouri nominating commission has given Gov. Jay Nixon his choice of a trial judge, a St. Louis attorney and a former aide to fill an opening on the state Supreme Court.

The three finalists for the state high court, announced Wednesday night, are Jackson County Circuit Judge Michael Manners, St. Louis attorney Stanley Wallach and Columbia attorney Paul Wilson. They are seeking to replace William Ray Price Jr., who stepped down from the Supreme Court in August.

The state’s Appellate Judicial Commission interviewed 18 candidates and deliberated for three hours before announcing its selection.

Nixon now has 60 days to decide whether to appoint one of the three finalists...

Wallach, 47, lives in Kirkwood and has focused on property law and eminent domain. He has been the chairman of the Missouri Bar Eminent Domain Committee and has testified before state lawmakers on condemnation and easement legislation. He has degrees in political science and Russian from Duke University and a law degree from the University of Chicago.
