Wallach’s volunteer activities have included serving as a board member of the Missouri chapter of the Nature Conservancy; as a board member of The World Affairs Council of St. Louis; as a Boy Scout leader; and as a planner and participant in Cystic Fibrosis Foundation fund-raising events. He also is active in his church in Kirkwood.
“Stan Wallach is well-respected among his peers and the judiciary for his keen legal intellect, ” Gov. Nixon said. “I’m pleased to appoint him to serve the citizens of St. Louis County as a member of the Circuit Court.”
Wallach was one of three applicants submitted to the Governor for consideration by the 21st Circuit Judicial Commission under the Missouri Nonpartisan Court Plan.
