New Bankruptcy Court Judge in Rochester

The uncertainty with regard to the next bankruptcy court judge in Rochester has finally been resolved. On March 15, 2012, Paul R. Warren, Esq., the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of New York, was sworn in as the next Bankruptcy Judge for the Rochester Division of the Bankruptcy Court.  Judge Warren replaced Judge Kaplan who was sitting in Rochester following Judge Ninfo’s retirement.

Mr. Warren received his undergraduate degree from St. John Fisher College and his law degree from the University of Dayton. He was admitted to practice in the Western District of New York in 1984. In the past, Mr. Warren served as a Chapter 7 panal trustee. A few years later, he was appointed the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court. Based in Rochester, Mr. Warren had worked in both Rochester and Buffalo offices of the Clerk’s office.

While Judge Warren has been on the bench for only two days, I already heard positive feedback from fellow bankruptcy lawyers who appeared before him during the motion term last week. I look forward to having some first hand experience appearing before him, and I will post my own impressions on this blog.
