Oakland County Judge Shuffle Update
|Honorable Edward Sosnick|
Also, Oakland County Family Court Judge James Alexander did not take over departed Judge Mark Goldsmith's docket but rather, is scheduled to "swap dockets" with long-time Oakland County Circuit Judge Edward Sosnick.
The last time Judge Sosnick handled a divorce was prior to the statutory creation of the Family Court back in 1998. As a seasoned jurist, however, he will acclimate quickly to the divorce docket as he rides-out his last two years on the bench.
Finally, long-time Oakland Family Court and Probate Judge Eugene Moore is retiring from the bench at the end of the year. His replacement will be determined via the November 2 election between candidates Kathleen Ryan and Dana Hathaway.
If you lose track of your newly assigned judge, reassignments can be tracked by using the Oakland County Circuit Court's Court Explorer.
Be sure to vote on November 2, and don't forget to make your selection for judge on the non-partisan ballot!
