Justice Scores A Point In Missouri Federal!

On Wednesday, July 16, 2014, the Senate confirmed Ronnie White as a U.S. District Court judge for the Eastern District of Missouri with judicial commission following the next day. His long overdue confirmation arrives 15 years after his first nomination was defeated by a slim margin party-line vote in 1999.

White’s career is one marked by a deep devotion to public servitude. After earning a law degree from the University of Missouri in 1983, he worked as a public defender in St. Louis and as an attorney for a number of government offices. He also served as a representative in the Missouri House of Representatives for six years. In 1994, White was appointed judge of the Eastern District of the Missouri Court of Appeals, and one year later, he was appointed to the Supreme Court of Missouri. In 2003, White became the first African-American Chief Justice, serving in that capacity until 2005.

White is a man highly regarded in the community and his ascension to the U.S. District Court judgeship marks a momentous occasion. On behalf of the Jefferson City NAACP, we congratulate the Honorable Judge Ronnie White.
