The Missouri Public Service Commission is seeking an attorney for the position of Regulatory Law Judge in our Jefferson City office. This is a quasi-judicial, administrative law judge position that requires the ability to preside over adversarial hearings which may last from 1 to 15 consecutive days on the record. These hearings routinely involve from 10 to 80 complex economic, engineering, and accounting issues, which include a minimum of 3 but often more than 10 or 12 adverse parties, and where the amount in dispute will often be millions of dollars.
In addition to presiding over complex litigation, the successful candidate will independently control a docket of cases from the Telecommunications, Electric, Gas, Water, and Sewer industries and review extensive pleadings, written expert testimony, briefs, and other case-related documents in the preparation of final Commission orders. The judge must work effectively within a panel of six judges and for a five-member Commission. This requires the ability to provide sound legal analysis and well-drafted documents under demanding deadlines.
