CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Governor Matt Mead has selected Catherine Rogers as the new First Judicial District Court Judge for Laramie County. Judge Rogers will fill the seat vacated by Judge Peter Arnold who is retiring.

Judge Rogers is currently a Circuit Court Judge in Laramie County. She graduated from Cheyenne Central High School and received a law degree at the University of Wyoming. Before being appointed to the Circuit Court, Rogers was in private practice with her father in Cheyenne.

“Judge Rogers has a proven track record presiding over hundreds of trials and she has shown a respect for the Constitution and the legal process,” Governor Mead said. “I am pleased to appoint her to the District Court bench. As a longtime Cheyenne resident, attorney and Circuit Court Judge she has shown her commitment to the community and to the judicial system.”

“Governor Mead has entrusted me with something very valuable – the privilege of making decisions that will affect the residents of Laramie County and the State of Wyoming. I will endeavor to uphold the law with integrity and fairness, and look forward to the challenges this position will present,” Judge Rogers said.
