New York State's 7th Judicial District has announced its new supervising judges for 2018.
State Supreme Court Justice Craig J. Doran, who was recently reappointed as administrative judge for the district, said there are several new judges and justices who will supervise courts in the counties of Cayuga, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne and Yates.
Alex R. Renzi — the former supervising judge for the town and village courts in Monroe, Livingston and Steuben counties — will replace William F. Kocher as the supervising judge of criminal courts while Matthew Rosenbaum supervises Supreme civil matters. As for Renzi's replacement, Thomas E. Moran will take over the town and village courts in the westernmost counties.
Meanwhile, in the remaining counties (Cayuga, Ontario, Seneca, Wayne and Yates), Richard A. Dollinger will supervise the local courts. He will also temporarily replace Elma Bellini as the acting supervising judge of matrimonial matters.
In addition, John B. Gallagher will supervise family courts and Teresa D. Johnson will watch over city courts. John L. DeMarco will serve as the supervising judge of treatment courts and, in the absence of Judge Doran, Evelyn Frazee will serve as the acting administrative judge for the district.
Doran said the appointments were made after consultation with Chief Administrative Judge Lawrence K. Marks and the approval of Chief Judge Janet DiFiore and Judge Gerald J. Whalen, who presides over the fourth department.
