Royster named as COA chief clerk

Larry Royster, a 24-year veteran at the Michigan Court of Appeals, has been appointed as the court’s chief clerk, effective Jan. 31.

COA Chief Judge William B. Murphy said the Royster will serve both as the chief clerk and in his current position as the COA’s research director.

According to Murphy:

The judges of this court are delighted to have someone of Mr. Royster’s talent and experience ready to assume the responsibilities of Chief Clerk.

He has served with distinction in past positions he has held in this Court’s administration and was the clear choice of our judges.

Royster will replace Chief Clerk Sandra Schultz Mengel.

Mengel is retiring from the court with high praise from Murphy:

[She] has served this Court as Chief Clerk in an exemplary fashion for almost 10 years and will be sorely missed. Her administrative leadership has been a critical component of this Court’s success.
