OU Law Alumnus Patrick Wyrick Named to Oklahoma Supreme Court

February 9, 2017 | By Mackenzie Dilbeck, Director of Communications
OU College of Law alumnus, Patrick Wyrick ('07) was named to the Oklahoma Supreme Court by Governor Mary Fallin. Wyrick will replace OU Law alumnus, Justice Steven W. Taylor ('74) who retired from the bench in December 2016. 
 
Wyrick has served in the Oklahoma Attorney General's office as Solicitor General since 2011. He joins two other OU College of Law alumni on the Oklahoma Supreme Court: Justice Tom Colbert ('83) and Justice Noma Gurich ('78).
 
“Patrick Wyrick is well positioned to tackle the difficult constitutional questions the Oklahoma Supreme Court must confront,” said Fallin. “He has litigated several significant constitutional law cases involving almost every frequently litigated provision in our state constitution. I have confidence he will perform his new duties with integrity and professionalism.”
 
Congratulations, Patrick!
