Governor Matt Mead has appointed Catherine (Kate) M. Fox as the newest member of the Wyoming Supreme Court. Fox replaces the Honorable Barton R. Voigt, who has been on the Supreme Court since 2001 and served as Chief Justice from July 1, 2006 to June 30, 2010.

Fox is currently a partner at Davis & Cannon in Cheyenne. She has had extensive private practice experience involving litigation, employment law and natural resource law. Before joining Davis & Cannon she was a law clerk for Federal District Court Judge Clarence Brimmer. Fox graduated at the top of her class at the University of Wyoming College of Law.

Governor Mead says this was  "an extremely difficult decision to make. All three of the candidates are well qualified to serve on the Supreme Court and they all had outstanding interviews." He also thanked the Judicial Nominating Commission for sending him such strong lawyers to consider for this position. Fox will be the second woman to serve on the Wyoming Supreme Court.
