Wolff leaving Mo. high court to teach law

Missouri Supreme Court Judge Michael Wolff.

By AP/St. Louis Public Radio

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri Supreme Court Judge Michael Wolff plans to step down next year to return to teaching law.

In a statement released by the court Wednesday, Wolff says he is going to resume teaching in the fall at Saint Louis University School of Law. The statement does not specify when Wolff planned to leave the Supreme Court, but the court says it is likely to be next summer.

The 65-year-old judge was named to the court in 1998 by Democratic Gov. Mel Carnahan, in whose administration he worked. Wolff also ran for attorney general in 1992 and 1998.

He taught law at Saint Louis University for 23 years.
