On the pages that follow, you will find the Judiciary’s Annual Report for 2010. It is worth pointing out that throughout 2010, the courts progressed into a new era of leadership. Just three months after I took office as Chief Justice in July 2009, Alice B. Gibney became Presiding Justice of the Superior Court, followed in 2010 by the appointments of Jeanne E. LaFazia as Chief Judge of the District Court and Haiganush R. Bedrosian as Chief Judge of the Family Court, respectively. It was only in 2008 that William R. Guglietta became Chief Magistrate of the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal. This makes Chief Judge George E. Healy, Jr., appointed in 2004 to head the Workers’ Compensation Court, our longest-serving Chief Judge. All are making their imprints on policies, procedures, and caseload management in these rapidly evolving times.
