United States : Governor Greitens Appoints James Cooksey as Associate Circuit Judge for Randolph County.

Governor Eric Greitens has appointed James (Jim) Cooksey, of Moberly, as associate circuit court judge for Randolph County. The position became vacant due to the retirement of the Honorable Cindy Suter.

Jim Cooksey brings to the bench 18 years of prior judicial service, along with 18 years in the private practice of law in Randolph County. Judge Cooksey was appointed by Governor Bond in 1984 to the associate circuit bench, and served as the countys associate circuit judge until 2003. Since 2003, he has been the principal attorney and owner of the Law Office of James M. Cooksey. He received his undergraduate degree from William Jewell College in business administration and his law degree from the University of Missouri School of Law.

Judge Cooksey has led many civic, educational, and charitable organizations. He served as a board member for Randolph Countys Big Brothers Big Sisters, Moberly Area Community College, and Randolph Countys Drug Free School Advisory Board. He is the past president of the Randolph County Bar Association, the Missouri State Probate and Associate Circuit Judges Association, and the Moberly Rotary Club.

I am excited to appoint Jim Cooksey to Randolph Countys associate circuit court, said Governor Greitens. His many years of experience practicing law in Randolph County and his prior service on the bench and in the community uniquely qualify him to serve.
