Governor appoints new Oklahoma Supreme Court justice

OKLAHOMA CITY — Governor Kevin Stitt announced Wednesday he appointed Dustin Rowe to the Supreme Court of Oklahoma.

Rowe’s appointment fills the vacancy created by former Justice Patrick Wyrick’s appointment to the United States District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma.

Rowe was one of three applicants provided by the Judicial Nominating Commission for the governor’s selection.

Dustin Rowe owned a law firm in Tishomingo since 2001.

He also served on the Chickasaw Nation District Court.

“His proven record in both his private practice and as a tribal court judge speaks to his qualifications to join the highest court in Oklahoma.” said Gov. Stitt.

This is Stitt’s second appointment to the court.
