Governor Baker Makes Two Judicial Nominations
Governor Baker Makes Two Judicial Nominations
BOSTON – Today, Governor Charlie Baker nominated Mary Rudolph Black as an Associate Justice of the Probate & Family Court, and Richard J. Sinnott to serve as a Boston Municipal Court Justice. Black has extensive experience practicing before the Probate & Family Court and Sinnott has served for over 25 years in civil and criminal law, including as a Judge Advocate in the U.S. Army Reserves and law professor at Suffolk University.
“I am pleased to nominate two experienced attorneys who have served their communities well and with distinction throughout their careers,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Richard Sinnott’s diverse legal experience and his commitment to human rights laws will make him a welcome addition to the Trial Court system and Mary Rudolph Black’s compassion and understanding of the issues before the Probate and Family Court will make her an invaluable and fair arbiter for the Commonwealth’s families.”
Black is being nominated for the seat vacated by The Honorable Peter C. DiGangi and Sinnott for the seat vacated by The Honorable Patricia E. Bernstein.
“These attorneys’ deep understanding of the law through practice, teaching and activity within their communities have prepared them to address the issues that will come before the respective courts to which they are being nominated,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “I look forward to the Governor’s Council’s review.”
The Probate and Family Court Department has jurisdiction over family-related and probate matters such as divorce, paternity, child support, custody, visitation, adoption, termination of parental rights, abuse prevention and wills, estates, trusts, guardianships and conservatorships.
The Boston Municipal Court Department has thirty judges serving the City of Boston in eight court divisions located in Brighton, Central (downtown), Charlestown, Dorchester, East Boston, Roxbury, South Boston and West Roxbury.
Judicial nominations are subject to the advice and consent of the Governor’s Council. Applicants for judicial openings are reviewed by the Judicial Nominating Commission (JNC) and recommended to the governor. Governor Baker established the JNC in February, 2015 pursuant to Executive Order 558, a non-partisan, non-political Commission composed of volunteers from a cross-section of the Commonwealth's diverse population to screen judicial applications. Twenty-one members were later appointed to the JNC in April, 2015.
