Brown reinstated as senior judge
Retired Common Pleas Judge Kenneth D. Brown will be reinstated as a senior judge for the Lycoming County Court of Common Pleas.
Senior Judge Brown will serve in this capacity until the judicial seat can be filled in January 2024, according to Lycoming County President Judge Nancy Butts.
His reinstatement is due to the retirement of Lycoming County Common Pleas Judge Marc Lovecchio, effective Nov. 2.
Judge Brown was elected as Common Pleas judge with a full 10-year term in 1989 and again in 1999.
He became President Judge in 2004 upon the retirement of Judge Clinton W. Smith.
At the end of his term in January 2010, Judge Brown became a senior judge.
Senior judges are retired judges assigned to cases, as needed, to ease court backlogs or take over cases where sitting judges have a conflict of interest.
They are assigned at the discretion of the Supreme Court to perform judicial services on a limited basis.
