JAMESTOWN – The City of Jamestown will have another full-time judge and courtroom on April 1.
On Friday, City Court Judge John LaMancuso, Administrative Judge for the 8th Judicial District Paula Feroleto and Mayor Sam Teresi made the announcement Friday in the City Council Chambers.
The current part-time judgeship will be eliminated at the end of March, with the full-time spot on the bench starting April 1. The position was made possible through legislation at the state level. Having two full-time judges will ease pressure on the court calendar and expedite proceedings.
