Franklin County Probate Court Judge Eric Brown Sworn in as Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice
Before family, friends and colleagues, Franklin County Probate Court Judge Eric Brown was sworn in last Monday as the ninth Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Ohio at a public ceremony at the Ohio Statehouse. Justice Paul E. Pfeifer, most senior member of the Supreme Court, administered the oath of office. The ceremony was held in the North Hearing Room of the Senate Annex, which served as one of the courtrooms for the Supreme Court between 1857 and 1974.
