Gov. names LaFlamme to 4th Circuit

Gov. Rick Snyder appointed Richard LaFlamme to the 4th Circuit Court in Jackson County. LaFlamme will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Judge Chad Schmucker, who in March was named state court administrator by the Michigan Supreme Court.

LaFlamme opened his own law firm in 1989 and specializes in employment, commercial and business law, and civil litigation. He has tried numerous cases at the state and federal levels. He previously worked at Dykema Gossett PLLC.

A Clarklake resident, LaFlamme has lived in Jackson County since 1982.

LaFlamme’s appointment runs through Jan. 1, 2013. He will have to seek election in 2012 for the balance of the term, which ends in 2016.
