JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – A former Missouri lawmaker has been appointed to a new judgeship in Clay County.
Gov. Jay Nixon said Monday that he has appointed Tim Flook, of Liberty, to serve as an associate circuit judge in Clay County. Flook is a Republican who served in the Missouri House from 2005 through 2010. He also has worked as an attorney since 1993.
Flook will be filling a newly created court position. He was one of three nominees submitted to Nixon by a nonpartisan commission that screen applicants for judgeships.
