New Judicial Bureau Hearing Officer Sworn In!
Chief Justice Reiber administered the oath of office to Judge Charles Romeo, Vermont’s new Judicial Bureau Hearing Officer, at the Rutland County Courthouse on Monday. (The ceremony was also live-streamed for those unable to attend in-person.) After welcoming Judge Romeo’s family, friends and colleagues to the ceremony, Chief Justice Reiber spoke of Judge Romeo’s background and experience in the legal community as a Deputy State’s Attorney and in private practice, as well as his pro bono work and active involvement in the Vermont Bar Association and Joan Loring Wing Inns of Court programs. After the oath was administered, Judge Romeo gave brief remarks thanking his parents, sister, wife and children for their encouragement, and his many colleagues in attendance (in -person and virtually!) for their support and comradery.
