An area judge had an opportunity to sit with the Missouri Supreme Court last week. Gentry County Associate Circuit Judge Ed Manring served with the Supreme Court Thursday by special designation.
Manring was sitting in place of Justice Patricia Breckenridge who was recused. A release from Missouri Supreme Court Chief Justice Zel Fischer, an Atchision County native, said the court is fortunate to have judges like Judge Manring to whom they can turn for assistance when one of the justices is unable to to sit due to recusal or other absence.
Manring heard the first case on Thursday's docket involving whether there is a constitutional right to a jury trial in a rent and possession case. Fischer also announced he would be presenting Manring with a special award this week in Kansas city -- the Judicial Excellence Associate Circuit Judge Award.
Manring has been an associate circuit judge in Gentry County since January 2007.
