Perry County judge to sit with appeals court for a day
Perry County Associate Circuit Judge Michael Bullerdieck will take part of a program implemented by Chief Judge Roy L. Richter and act as special judge in the Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District on Sept. 1.
By reading briefs and transcripts and participating in the arguments before the Court of Appeals, the program is to give trial judges insight into the appellate process.
Bullerdieck will sit in Division I with Richter and Judge Kenneth M. Romines.
According to a news release from the Court of Appeals, judges selected to sit with the court will be better prepared to assure that counsel appearing before them make a clear record for appeal and will share the knowledge with fellow trial judges.
Richter called his own opportunity a "wonderful learning experience."
