Harrisburg, June 13, 2016 – State Sen. John Yudichak today provided the following statement in response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s nomination of Luzerne County attorney Joseph Cosgrove to the state Commonwealth Court:
“I applaud Governor Wolf, Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman and Democrat Leader Jay Costa for forging a bipartisan compromise that will bring a talented jurist, like Joe Cosgrove, to the Commonwealth Court.
“Attorney Joe Cosgrove is at his core a man of social justice imbued with a judicial temperament and a scholarly knowledge of the law.
“Joe Cosgrove’s experience on the Court of Common Pleas in Luzerne County and his work as legal counsel for the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts makes him uniquely qualified to be an exceptional judge on the Commonwealth Court.”
