Korbey Joins Judicial Conduct Committee
Judge John A. Korbey, of Salem, was recently appointed to the NH Judicial Conduct Committee (JCC) by the NH Supreme Court. He is the presiding justice of the Salem District Court.
He began his experience as a judge in 1976 when he was appointed to be special justice of the Auburn District Court. He became presiding judge of that court in 1980 and, in 1996, was appointed Family Division Supervisory Judge. He received his law degree at Boston College in 1972.
Since July 1, 2005, various appointments to the JCC are made by the governor, president of the Senate, speaker of the House, president of the NH Bar Association, and the Supreme Court. Of the 11 members, six are from the public, three are judges, one is a clerk of court, and one is a practicing attorney.
At a recent meeting of the JCC, Dr. Robert O. Wilson, a dentist from Hopkinton appointed by the governor, and Wilfred L. “Jack” Sanders, Jr., an attorney from Waterville Valley and Stratham appointed by the NHBA, were respectively elected president and vice president of the committee.
