Columbus lawyer Betsy Luper Schuster will leave her job as chief elections counsel at the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office and take the bench on the Tenth District Court of Appeals on Monday after her appointment yesterday by the governor.

Schuster replaces Judge Peggy L. Bryant, who died in August one week after her retirement. Schuster must run in the November general election to retain the seat for the remainder of the unexpired term, which ends February 9, 2019.

“I am truly humbled and honored by the appointment,” Schuster said. “I look forward to serving the citizens of Franklin County on the Tenth District Court of Appeals.”

Schuster received her bachelor’s and law degrees from Ohio State University. She was admitted to the practice of law in Ohio on November 10, 1997.

Schuster previously served as a commissioner for the Court of Claims of Ohio Crime Victims Division and as hearing officer for OSU, the Ohio Department of Education, and other state agencies. She has served as an adjunct professor at Capital University Law School and OSU’s Moritz College of Law. Schuster has also served Ohio as chief legal counsel and deputy chief legal counsel in the Office of the Governor and as an assistant attorney general in the Office of the Attorney General.
