Some big changes are coming to the Town Court of Greenburgh in 2012 and they should have a huge effect on the way the Court handles everything from Speeding Tickets to DWI’s. Firstly, as a result of their loss in the primary long time Town Judge’s Sandra Forster and Doris Friedman will no longer be Judges in the Town of Greenburgh Court. Two new judges will take their place. In addition, it was announced last month that Regina Hill, the Court Administrator brought in to improve Court operations in Greenburgh would also be stepping down.
Three Judges were sworn in on December 23, 2011 by New York Court of Appeals Associate Judge Theodore Jones. The new Judges as of January 1, 2012 will be Arlene Gordon-Oliver, Walter Rivera and Delores Scott Brathwaite. Judge Arlene Gordon-Oliver is the only returning judge having served in the Town of Greenburgh Court since 2007. In addition, the search continues for a replacement for Regina Hill.
One of the changes that is expected in 2012 will be another night court session in the Town of Greenburgh. One night per week was already added and another one is expected to be added soon.
