Gov. Eric Greitens has appointed Thomas C. Clark, II, of St. Louis, as Circuit Court Judge for the 22nd Judicial Circuit, which covers St. Louis City. The position became vacant through the retirement of the Honorable Thomas J. Frawley.

Judge Clark has been an Associate Circuit Court Judge for St. Louis since 2006. Prior to his appointment to the Associate Circuit Court, Judge Clark was an assistant circuit attorney for the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s office.  He obtained his law degree from Saint Louis University and his undergraduate degree from the University of Kansas. He also holds a master’s degree in public administration from Saint Louis University. Judge Clark’s civic and community involvement include the Boy Scouts of America, Eagle Scout Association, Leadership St. Louis/Focus, St. James Catholic Church, and Knights of Columbus.

“Judge Clark’s many years of experience as an Associate Circuit Court judge and his commitment to public service in the City of St. Louis uniquely qualify him to be a Circuit Court judge,” Gov. Greitens said. “Judge Clark will continue to serve the court with distinction and respect.”
