St Paul (KROC AM News) – A longtime judge from northeast Minnesota has been appointed to the state Appeals Court.

Gov. Mark Dayton today announced the appointment of Judge James Florey of the Sixth Judicial District.

He will take the seat currently held by Judge Lawrence Stauber, who will retire at the end of May.

Florey was first appointed to his current seat in 1999 by Gov. Arne Carlson. Prior to that, he worked for the St. Louis County Attorney’s office for 15 years. He earned his law degree at William Mitchell College.

He was one of three finalists for a seat on the Minnesota Supreme Court last year.

The appellate court handles most of the appeals from the final decisions of the trial courts, state agencies and local governments. It is composed of judges who represent each of Minnesota’s eight congressional districts as well as eleven judges who serve in an at-large capacity.
