Governor Eric Greitens has appointed Madeline O. Connolly, of St. Louis, as Associate Circuit Court Judge for the 22nd Judicial Circuit, which covers the City of St. Louis. She will replace the Honorable Timothy Boyer, whom Governor Greitens appointed to the circuit bench earlier this year.
Madeline Connolly, a lifelong St. Louis City resident, is an associate attorney at Tucker Ellis, LLP, where she defends companies in mass tort and product liability civil litigation matters. Before joining the firm, Connolly spent five years as an Assistant Circuit Attorney in St. Louis City, where she tried more than 40 jury trials, including homicides, violent assaults, robberies, weapons offenses, property crimes, and drug trafficking offenses. She received her undergraduate degree from Valparaiso University and her law degree from Saint Louis University.
“Madeline Connolly has a proven dedication to the City of St. Louis and extensive experience trying both criminal and civil cases in the 22nd Judicial Circuit,” said Governor Greitens. “She will be an excellent judge.”
