Witt elected president of state judges group

At the 88th annual meeting of the Missouri Association of Probate and Associate Circuit Judges held April 2-4, Judge Gary Witt of Platte County was elected as president of the association.

The association is dedicated to the promotion of the welfare and mutual interests of the members, to conduct continuing education for the judges of this state and to work with the legislature to enact laws which allow the circuit courts to better serve the people of the State of Missouri in the administration of justice.

The association is made up of associate circuit judges, probate judges, family court commissioners, probate commissioners, and drug court commissioners from across the state.

Witt served on the Association Board of Directors for three years and has served as vice president for the past year. As vice president, he was in charge of the annual meeting held this year in Columbia. During the three days that the meeting was held, in addition to the business meeting, educational programs were presented dealing with family law, probate law, post conviction relief hearings, civil/domestic discovery issues, judicial ethics, landlord/tenant and collection cases, and many other topics.

The presenters consisted of judges, commissioners and lawyers from across the state with expertise in these particular areas.

Approximately 140 members of the association were in attendance at this years meeting. The membership was addressed by Missouri Supreme Court Chief Justice Stephen Limbaugh, Jr. at the annual banquet.

Witt is an associate circuit judge from the Sixth Judicial Circuit in Platte County, a position he has held since 1998.
