Nearly 15 years after the U.S. Senate rejected his nomination to be a federal judge on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, Ronnie White is getting a second chance. President Barack Obama has nominated him again for the same type of judgeship.
Former Missouri Supreme Court Chief Justice Michael Wolff has been named as the new dean of Saint Louis University's School of Law.
Wolff is currently a professor at the School of Law and is the co-director of its Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Law. He sandwiched his judicial experience between his roles at SLU now and 23 years prior as a faculty member there.
Wolff is the School of Law's third dean in under a year.
