Stephen Nathaniel Limbaugh, Jr. (born January 25, 1952)[2] is currently a Judge on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, having been confirmed by the U.S. Senate on June 10, 2008. From 1992 to 2008, he served as a Judge on the Supreme Court of Missouri.

He was born in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and is the son of retired federal district judge Stephen N. Limbaugh, Sr., and a cousin of prominent radio commentator Rush Limbaugh. He earned his B.A. and J.D. degrees from Southern Methodist University in 1973 and 1976, respectively. He continued his studies in law with an LL.M. degree from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1998. Following a stint in private practice in Cape Girardeau, he was elected as Prosecuting Attorney of Cape Girardeau County, Missouri at the age of 26 in 1978, serving one four-year term before returning to private practice. Beginning in 1987, he served as a Judge for the 32nd state Judicial Circuit, serving until his appointment to the Supreme Court of Missouri in 1992. From 2001 to 2003, he served one term as the state's Chief Justice. On December 6, 2007, President George W. Bush nominated Judge Limbaugh to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri to fill the seat vacated by Donald J. Stohr. He was confirmed by the United States Senate on June 10, 2008, received his commission on August 1, 2008, and was succeeded on the Missouri Supreme Court by Judge Zel Fischer.

He currently lives in Cape Girardeau with his wife, the former Marsha M. Limbaugh. They have two grown sons.
