Judge Giordano Appointed to Orphans Court Rules Committee

The term "Orphans' Court" is a bit misleading. It's the court with jurisdiction over most matters of estate administration, including the estates of decedents, trusts, minors and incapacitated persons. It also handles adoptions and the termination of parental rights. Northampton County Judge Emil Giordano presides over Orphans' Court, among his other duties. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court must like what it sees because it just appointed Judge Giordano to its Orphans' Court Procedural Rules Committee.

But he still is unable to overrule calls made by a basketball referee.

He seems like a nice fellow with a big heart.

Great pick for a hard job.
