Governor Appoints New Seventh Judicial District Judge


CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  Governor Matt Mead has selected Judge Daniel Forgey as the new Seventh Judicial District Judge for Natrona County. Forgey will fill the seat vacated by Judge David Park who is retiring.

Forgey is currently a Circuit Court Judge in Sweetwater County. He has served in that capacity since 2007. Prior to that he was staff attorney for Justice Barton Voigt with the Wyoming Supreme Court. Forgey has also worked as Hot Springs County and Prosecuting Attorney and law clerk for U.S District Judge William Downes. He received his law degree at the University of Wyoming.

“Dan has worked with some great legal minds across Wyoming’s judicial system. This has served him well, and his time on the Circuit Court, where he has handled a big docket timely and effectively, has added to his experience in a positive way,” Governor Mead said.

“I am humbled by this opportunity and appreciate Governor Mead giving me the chance to serve the people of Natrona County. This is service I gladly accept,” Judge Forgey said.
