Judge Ronnie White Leaves Missouri Supreme Court

By Maria Hickey


Kansas City, MO – Judge Ronnie White's last day on the Missouri Supreme Court was Friday. He announced on Monday that he's becoming a partner with the St. Louis law firm Holloran & Schwartz, now to be called Holloran, White & Schwartz. White was appointed to the high court in 1995 and had one more year to go in his 12-year term. KWMU's Maria Hickey spoke him about why he left the court, and his thoughts on the state's judiciary. But the first thing she asked was whether to call him Judge White, or Mr. White.
