Nassau County Gets Two New Supervising Judges
Chief Administrative Judge A. Gail Prudenti (See Profile) has tapped two County Court judges to fill supervisory slots in Nassau County. Judge Christopher Quinn (See Profile) has been named County Court supervising judge while Judge Norman St. George (See Profile) has been selected as District Court supervising judge.
Quinn, the former District Court supervising judge, fills the vacancy left by John Kase, who stepped down last year due to mandatory retirement rules (NYLJ, Dec. 31). St. George is filling the vacancy created by Quinn's appointment.
Quinn joined the District Court in 1998 and has served as its supervising judge since 2006. His work before joining the bench included serving in the state Attorney General's Office as deputy attorney general in charge of the Criminal Division.
St. George, after his 2004 appointment to District Court, was elected to the bench later that year. In 2008, he was appointed and then elected to County Court. His background before joining the bench included work as a Nassau County prosecutor and managing partner of a firm known as Jackson, Brown, Powell & St. George.
