Missouri Legal Trivia

Correction: In the “Missouri Legal Trivia” quiz appearing in the Winter 2011 issue of Precedent, Judge Nannette Baker was incorrectly identified as the first woman to be appointed as a United States Magistrate Judge for the Eastern District of Missouri. The correct answer should have been Judge Carol

E. Jackson, who became

a United States Magistrate Judge for the Eastern District of Missouri in 1986. We regret the error and any confusion it may have caused.
