Attorney General Chris Koster selected a St. Louis-area judge to head a division dealing with civil, workers and disability rights.
Koster selected Barbara Crancer, a judge in St. Louis County, to serve as chief counsel of the Division of Civil, Disability and Workers’ Rights. Koster promised to create the division during his campaign for attorney general.
“After nearly 20 years in public service, I have come to appreciate the important role our government and our legal system play in making sure Missourians’ rights are protected,” Crancer said in a statement. “I am humbled to be appointed to this position by Attorney General Koster, and I look forward to working with the many talented attorneys, investigators and other experts in the Attorney General’s Office to make a difference for Missourians.”
Crancer is the sister of current Teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. and the daughter of missing Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa.
