Kevin Connelly, a Probate and Family Court Judge assigned to the Middlesex Division of the Probate and Family Court has been nominated to replace Judge Catherine Sabaitis who retired earlier this year.

“Judge Connelly’s dedication to serving Massachusetts families during trying and complicated domestic legal proceedings is admirable,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “I have the utmost confidence that the Court will be strengthened by his continued commitment to justice.”

Judicial nominations are subject to the advice and consent of the Governor’s Council.

Applicants for judicial openings are reviewed by the Judicial Nominating Commission (JNC) and recommended to the governor.

Governor Baker established the JNC in February 2015 pursuant to Executive Order 558, a non-partisan, non-political Commission composed of volunteers from a cross-section of the Commonwealth’s diverse population to screen judicial applications.

Twenty-one members were later appointed to the JNC in April 2015.
