Reassignment of Luzerne County Judges Announced (Effective January 1, 2014)

Luzerne County Courthouse
Wilkes-Barre, PA

According to an October 21, 2013 Scranton Times Tribune article by Bob Kalinowski entitled "Luzerne County Judges Getting New Assignments," the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas announced a planned reassignment of judges to be effective come January 1, 2014 for the civil, criminal, juvenile, and family courts. 

Here is a LINK to the article.

To the extent, that you may not be able to access the article online (because you have to pay to view, or otherwise), I note that the article reports that Judge Lesa Gelb and Judge Richard Hughes will now focus on civil matters rather than civil and criminal matters as they have in the past.  President Judge Thomas F. Burke, Jr. will also continue to handle civil matters.

Judge William H. Amesbury has been appointed as administrator of the juvenile court but will also continue to handle civil matters.

Judge Michael T. Vough will continue to handle criminal and civil matters.

No other judges were identified as being assigned to take part in civil matters after January 1, 2014.
