Governor Baker Makes Two Judicial Nominations
Governor Baker Makes Two Judicial Nominations
BOSTON – Governor Charlie Baker has nominated Kathryn Phelan-Brown, an attorney from Lynn, to serve as an Associate Justice on the Massachusetts Juvenile Court, and First Assistant Attorney General Christopher K. Barry-Smith to serve as an Associate Justice on the Massachusetts Superior Court.
“Attorneys Phelan-Brown and Barry-Smith will bring exceptional legal acumen and sound judgment to their respective benches, and put decades of relevant experience to work for the citizens of the Commonwealth, if confirmed,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Ms. Phelan-Brown has devoted her practice to the Juvenile Court, exhibiting the compassion and commitment needed to represent children and families in some of the most heart wrenching cases in the Commonwealth. Mr. Barry-Smith has served three Attorneys General with distinction, in a number of positions of increasing responsibility within the AG’s office and I am pleased to recommend both to the Governor's Council for their consideration."
“I look forward to the Council’s review of these two distinguished attorneys,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “I believe both possess the qualities and the experience to excel on their respective courts and I am confident that they will treat those that appear before them fairly and wisely.”
Applicants for judicial openings are reviewed by the statewide Judicial Nominating Commission and recommended to the Governor. All judicial nominations are subject to the advice and consent of the Governor’s Council.
The Juvenile Court Department is a statewide court with jurisdiction over civil and criminal matters including delinquencies, youthful offender cases, care and protections and children requiring assistance cases.
