Pa Supreme Court sides with Judge Trucilla in ethics dispute

Local News

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court backed Judge John Trucilla in an ethics dispute with fellow Judge Stephanie Domitrovich.

The issue is whether a judge can rule on a case brought by a family member.

Judge John Trucilla was President Judge in 2019 when he ruled that it is an ethical violation for Judge Domitrovich to rule on a case brought by her son, who was a lawyer with LECOM.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has agreed.

Judge Trucilla has no comment other than to say he will abide by the decision.
