The second-longest serving member of the state supreme court will callit a career next summer. Judge Michael Wolff plans to become a fulltime teacher at St. Louis University School of Law for the fall semester next year. Wolff taught there for 28 years before Governor Carnahan appointed him to the Supreme Court in 1998.

Wolff lran for Attorney General in 1992 but lost the Democratic primary to Jay Nixon who went on

to win his first term.

Wolff was the Chief Justice from 2005 to 2007. He’ll be 65 next April and says he faces mandatory in the “not-too-distant future.” But he says he’s not the retiring type…so he’s going to become a fulltime teacher.
