Ohio Supreme Court Judicial College Board elects officers

The Ohio Supreme Court Judicial College Board of Trustees elected officers at a meeting on Jan. 17, 2014, and welcomed three new members.

Created in 1976, the Judicial College helps judges meet their mandatory education requirements. It is partially funded by attendee registration fees and federal grants.

Ten members serve as trustees and provide advice to the Judicial College. The membership consists of seven judges appointed by the various judicial associations, one magistrate appointed by the Ohio Association of Magistrates and two judges appointed by the chief justice.

The three-member leadership team for 2014 includes:

  • Licking County Common Pleas Court Judge Thomas M. Marcelain, chair, who was reappointed to a second three-year term.
  • Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court Judge Diane M. Palos, vice chair.
  • Licking County Domestic Relations Court Magistrate C. William Rickrich, secretary.
The newest trustees, whose three-year terms end Dec. 31, 2016, include:
