MADISON (WAOW) - An Eau Claire County circuit judge has been appointed to the Wausau-based Third District Court of Appeals.
Gov. Scott Walker named Judge Lisa K. Stark to replace retiring Appeals Court Judge Gregory Peterson, effective April 23.
Walker says Stark's term on the three-judge panel will be up for election in April 2014.
The 66-year-old Peterson was an Eau Claire County circuit judge for 16 years before joining the appellate court about 13 years ago.
The court handles appeals from circuit courts in more than 30 counties.
Frustrations are mounting for a rural Portage County community after the third violent sex offender is placed into their community.
