Lazarus Announces Bid for PA Supreme Court Seat

Judge LazarusThe battle for the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has officially begun.

PA Superior Court Judge Anne E. Lazarus announced her candidacy for the State Supreme Court today. As we’ve discussed, they’ll be three seats open on the body in next year’s elections.

Judge Lazarus currently serves as Chair of the Judicial Conduct Board and has served as a Superior Court judge since 2009. She was first appointed to the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas in 1991 by Governor Bob Casey Sr. She won re-election later that year and in 2001.

“I am honored and excited to formally announce that I will be a candidate for Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court in 2015,” she stated in her announcement. “Throughout my tenure as both a trial and appellate judge, I have seen Pennsylvanians at some of the most difficult times of their lives and gained a unique understanding of the role that our judicial system plays in the fabric of our state.”

“I have always believed that being a jurist is more than just a job: judges are the face of the judicial system in Pennsylvania and our responsibilities go beyond the bench,” Judge Lazarus continued. “This is why I take great pains to recognize attorneys who were providing exemplary pro-bono service and why I dedicate my time to mentoring young lawyers — I want to do my part to ensure that our great Commonwealth lives up to its promise and potential for generations to come.”

“I look forward to spending this campaign talking to the voters of Pennsylvania about my dedication to the judiciary and priorities for Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court,” she concluded.

In 2015, voters will be filling the vacancy of retiring Chief Justice Ron Castille, the seat left open by Judge Seamus McCaffery’s resignation and Justice Correale Stevens’ term will also be expiring.

    Whatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation. icloud login onlinesbi bob net banking The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.”  andhra bank net banking aipmt result gst login income tax login jobs villa neet 2017 ignou jee main jee advanced 2017 “If you want to get laid, go to college.

    If her effectiveness on the Judicial Conduct Board is any indicator of her ability to provide justice – its VOTE NO. They are still dismissing valid complaints and destroying peoples lives. Out of 795 Complaints last year – they sent out four letters and one judge was removed.. As we all know – there is no way that only five complaints were valid. And giving judges a slap on the hand is just encouraging more misconduct. And how can a sitting judge be on the Conduct Board – its a conflict of interest. Lazarus is just another member of the club – and the Crickett Club.

    Superior Court Judge Ann Lazarus is precisely the caliber of jurist we need on the PA Supreme Court. The people of PA will be well served by the experience and dedication of Judge Lazarus.
