Governor Eric Greitens has appointed Scott A. Millikan, of St. Louis, as Circuit Court Judge for the 22nd Judicial Circuit, which covers the City of St. Louis. The position became vacant due to the retirement of the Honorable Jimmie Edwards.
For nearly 25 years, Scott Millikan has served the City of St. Louis. Millikan began his career as a police officer, later serving as a prosecutor, municipal judge, and court administrator for the City of St. Louis. In 2017, Governor Greitens appointed Millikan to serve as an associate circuit court judge.
Judge Millikan received his law degree from Saint Louis University and his undergraduate degree from Webster University. In the community, Judge Millikan is a volunteer, mentor, and coach. He is a member of Backstoppers, Inc., an organization committed to honoring and remembering fallen heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice for public safety, and a coach for the Catholic Youth Council.
“In just a short amount of time, Scott Millikan has distinguished himself on St. Louis City’s associate circuit court as a knowledgeable, fair, and efficient judge,” said Governor Greitens. “I know he will continue to serve with distinction on the circuit bench for many years to come.”
