ALLEGAN -- A Saugatuck attorney with 20 years of practice in insurance defense, medical malpractice and other civil law has been appointed to the Allegan County Circuit Court bench.

Gov. Jennifer Granholm on Monday appointed William Baillargeon, who most recently served as a magistrate for the state's Workers' Compensation Board of Magistrates, to fill the post of retired Judge Harry Beach.

Beach stepped down at the end of 2006, leaving a term that expires in January 2009.

Baillargeon, who also previously worked as a senior trial specialist with the law offices of Paula J. Martin/CAN Insurance Co. in Farmington Hills, unsuccessfully sought the district judge appointment that went to Joseph Skocelas in April 2006.
