OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A Tishomingo attorney who is also a Chickasaw Nation district judge has been appointed to the Oklahoma Supreme Court.

Gov. Kevin Stitt on Nov. 20 announced the appointment of Dustin Rowe to the court to fill the vacancy left when Judge Patrick Wyrick was appointed a federal judge.

Lowe is a former mayor of Tishomingo, having been elected at age 18 in 1994 and serving two terms. He’s practiced law in Tishomingo since 2001 and is currently a district judge on the Chickasaw Nation District Court.

Lowe is Stitt’s second appointment to the state Supreme Court after he selected Judge John Kane in September to replace retiring Justice John Reif.

Rowe was chosen from among three candidates recommended to Stitt by the state’s Judicial Nominating Commission.
