Governor Picks Workers' Comp Plaintiff's Attorney for District Judge

Topeka, KS (CompNewsNetwork) - Governor Kathleen Sebelius has appointed Neil B. Foth District Court Judge of the 10th Judicial District serving Johnson County.

"Neil brings 25 years experience in the legal field to this position," Sebelius said. "His work as a plaintiff's attorney, in general practice and as a public defender give him a well-rounded perspective. I'm confident Neil will serve the people of the 10th Judicial District well."

Currently, Foth is a partner with Foth & Orrick, LLP., where he primarily serves as a plaintiff's attorney handling cases involving personal injury, workers compensation, and legal malpractice. Throughout his career, Foth has litigated a wide variety of cases such as malpractice and condemnation cases; divorces; insurance defense litigation; indigent felony defense work; and municipal court matters.

Foth attended the University of Kansas for both his bachelor's degree and his juris doctorate.

Foth replaces the Honorable John Anderson, III, who has retired. District courts are the trial courts of Kansas, with general original jurisdiction over all civil and criminal cases, including divorce and domestic relations; damage suits; probate and administration of estates; guardianships; conservatorships; care of the mentally ill; juvenile justice matters; and small claims.

He and his wife, Julie Carter Foth, an attorney with Swiss Re, are parents to a son, Jackson, 15; and daughter, Summer, 13. His father, J. Richard Foth, served as Chief Judge of the Kansas Court of Appeals from 1978 until his death in 1985.
