Commerce Court Changes Official

It’s official: Judge Howland W. Abramson and Judge Arnold L. New will be swapping places within the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas’ trial division. According to a notice to the bar first released Wednesday, New will be joining the three-member Commerce Case Management Program, and Abramson will be taking over as the judicial team leader of the 2008 Day Forward Major Jury Program.

The change is effective Sept. 2.

Since July 28, Judge Idee C. Fox has been in the civil motions program, handling the case inventory handled by Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Jane Cutler Greenspan. Greenspan was elevated in July to the Supreme Court to fill out former Chief Justice Ralph G. Cappy’s term.

Abramson has served on the court since January 2005.

A more in-depth report from The Legal Intelligencer  will be in Friday’s paper.
