DENVER (AP) - Gov. Bill Ritter has appointed Maria Teresa "Terry" Fox to the Colorado Court of Appeals.
Fox will replace retiring Judge Sean Connelly. She has been an assistant U.S. attorney in Colorado since 2004, working as trial counsel to federal agencies and specializing in environmental, constitutional and other civil matters. Before that, Fox worked in the Colorado attorney general's office and the Holland & Hart law firm.
Her appointment, announced Wednesday, will be effective Jan. 11 for a provisional two-year term. If she's retained by voters, she'll then serve eight years.
Fox earned her bachelor's degree in chemical engineering and petroleum refining from Colorado School of Mines in 1989 and her law degree from South Texas College of Law in 1993.
