Gov. Phil Bryant Appoints Representative Cory Wilson to the Mississippi Court of Appeals.

This announcement follows Court of Appeals Judge Kenny Griffis’ appointment to the Mississippi Supreme Court to fill retiring Justice Bill Waller’s seat.

“Cory has been a superb legislator for the people of Madison County and will be a wonderful judge on the Mississippi Court of Appeals,” said Gov. Bryant. “He has an outstanding history of serving the people of the state of Mississippi in various roles, and this is only the next step for him in doing that. I am pleased he has accepted this appointment.”

Wilson served as a former Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann and practiced as a litigator for Jernigan Copeland Attorneys, PLLC. He has served in the Mississippi House of Representatives since 2016.

 Mississippi Court of Appeals District 3 is comprised of Clarke, Clay, Jasper, Kemper, Lauderdale, Lowndes, Neshoba, Newton, Noxubee, Oktibbeha, Rankin, Scott, Smith and Winston counties—and portions of Attala, Jones, Leake, Madison, and Wayne counties.

Wilson is a graduate of Yale Law School.

He and his wife Stephanie are parents of one son.
