JANESVILLE - Two judges appointed by outgoing Governor Scott Walker earlier this year are set to seek the bench in the April 2 election, according to early state election data.

Branch 1

Karl Hanson, who was appointed on March 5 to replace retiring judge James Daley, has primarily presided over criminal cases in Rock County Circuit Court. Hanson filed his campaign registration statement on Aug. 29, according to the Wisconsin Elections Commission.

"It is an honor and privilege to serve our community as a judge," Hanson said. "I am humbled everyday by the trust and confidence that has been placed in me."

Prior to his appointment to the bench, Hanson was an assistant attorney general at the Wisconsin Department of Justice and the elected municipal judge for the Towns of Milton, Harmony and Lima. Hanson previously practiced law with a firm in Janesville. He is a graduate of West Point and earned his law degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School and holds a master of public administration degree from Western Kentucky University.

Branch 2

Newly-appointed judge Derrick Grubb is set to seek election after being appointed in June to replace retiring Judge Alan Bates. Grubb filed his campaign registration statement on Sept. 19, according to the Wisconsin Elections Commission.

Grubb, a Beloit attorney, was previously appointed by the Wisconsin Supreme Court to the Office of Lawyer Regulation District 12 Committee where he served for nine years investigating grievances filed against attorneys. He has also served as guardian ad litem for Rock County by the county board for four years. Grubb earned his juris doctorate from Marquette University Law School and undergraduate degree from Western Illinois University.

Branch 4

Judge Daniel Dillon is set to seek reelection with his campaign registration statement filed on Nov. 29, according to Wisconsin Elections Commission tracking data. He was appointed by former Gov. Tommy Thompson in 2000.
