The Third Branch
Stark appointed to Court of Appeals
Judge Lisa K. Stark
On Feb. 13, Gov. Scott Walker announced the appointment of Eau Claire County Circuit Court Judge Lisa K. Stark to the District III Court of Appeals. Stark will take office on April 23, filling the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Gregory A. Peterson last November.
She is running unopposed for the seat in the April election.
"I have been honored to serve and really enjoyed my time on the bench in Eau Claire County and have been privileged to be involved in many activities that I believe have really enhanced the effectiveness of the justice system," Stark said. "However, I am looking forward to this new opportunity."
Stark was first elected to the Eau Claire County Branch 1 bench in 2000. She currently serves as dean of the Wisconsin Judicial College, on the board of directors for the Wisconsin Law Alumni Association, as presiding judge for the Eau Claire County Drug Court, on the Eau Claire County Treatment Court Advisory Board, and as president of the Eau Claire County Restorative Justice Project.
