Who is Hearing Cases in Judge Koury's Magisterial District?
What's going on with the magisterial vacancy created by Judge Michael Koury's recent election to County Court? In response to a Right-to-Know request, Deputy Court Administrator Jill Cicero has supplied me a copy of a statement she provided to Northampton County Council member John Cusick. "Judge Koury's former Magisterial District Judge position remains vacant. The job is being fulfilled by a compliment [sic] of the seven Senior Magisterial District Judges on a monthly rotational basis. This office ranks 5th out of the fifteen County Magisterial District Judicial Offices in the number of case filings."
