Superior Court Chief Judge Forum connects the public with the local court

The DC Judicial Nomination Commission welcomed all members of the community to attend the DC Superior Court Chief Judge Candidate Forum on July 10. The Forum, which was held in the third floor Jurors' Lounge at Superior Court, was well attended by residents, court staff, and the media.

CCE was pleased to help publicize this public Forum as part of our mission to increase public interaction with our justice system. The Legal Times provided great coverage of the Forum.

WPFW interviewed CCE Executive Director June Kress the morning of this Candidate Forum to discuss our mission and the role of the Chief Judge. Listen to the interview by Metro Watch's Gloria Minott here.

In advance of the forum, CCE distributed a public copy of Chief Judge Lee F. Satterfield's extended statement of interest from his initial application in 2008, as well as the abbreviated 2012 statement here. Chief Judge Satterfield is the sole applicant.


Chief Judge Satterfield has been reappointed by the Judicial Nomination Commission for a second term. Read additional coverate at the Washington Post and the Blog of the Legal Times.
