DETROIT – Six Wayne State University Law School alumni have been named among the top circuit court judges in the metropolitan area by DBusiness magazine in its January/February edition.

The publication polled 18,200 attorneys in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw and Livingston counties, asking for nominations for top circuit court judges based on criteria such as integrity, knowledge of the law, efficiency and judicial temperament.

Of the top 21 judges named, nearly 30 percent are Wayne Law graduates.

They are:

  • Hon. Timothy P. Connors, Washtenaw County, class of 1980
  • Hon. Nanci J. Grant, Oakland County, class of 1989
