Written by andrew-rossi on September 6, 2017
Governor Matt Mead will be in Cody this afternoon to speak at the robing ceremony for newly appointed District Court Judge Bill Simpson.
Although Simpson took over the bench on July 31st, after the retirement of Judge Steven Cranfill, the official robing ceremony is set for today at 2 p.m. in the District Courtroom at the Park County Courthouse in Cody.
Simpson is a graduate of Cody High School, has a Bachelor of Science degree with honors from the University of Wyoming and a Juris Doctor degree from the University’s College of Law. Simpson has been in private practice in Cody for the last 33 years, most of that also working for the Wyoming Public Defender’s Office.
In a statement naming Simpson as the Fifth Judicial Court Judge, Governor Mead pointed at Simpson’s long and strong commitment to the Cody area, his legal experience, and his volunteer legal work to help those in need as factors in the Governor’s final selection.
