The Kansas Supreme Court has reappointed Judge Rene Young to a new two-year term as chief judge of the 28th judicial district. The appointment is effective February 1, 2016, to December 31, 2017.
Young has served as a district judge in the 28th judicial district since 2006. She presides over cases in Saline and Ottawa counties.
“We are glad that Judge Young agreed to serve another two years as chief judge, providing continuity in capable leadership in the 28th judicial district,” said Lawton R. Nuss, chief justice of the Kansas Supreme Court.
“I appreciate the Supreme Court’s confidence in me to continue serving as chief judge in the 28th judicial district,” Young said.
Before becoming a judge, Young practiced law in Salina for 20 years. She is a graduate of Washburn University School of Law. Before law school, she worked as a registered nurse in the intensive care unit at Asbury Hospital.
Each of Kansas’ 31 judicial districts has a chief judge who, in addition to his or her judicial responsibilities, has general control over case assignments within the district, as well as general supervisory authority over the administrative and clerical functions of the court.
