Montgomery County has added two new judges to the bench.
Saying they were honored and humbled by their ascensions to the Montgomery County bench, two legal eagles, each with decades of experience, took their oaths of office before a standing room only crowd. Spectators erupted with thunderous applause as Jeffrey S. Saltz, 64, of Lower Merion Township, and Wendy G. Rothstein, 61, of Plymouth Township, officially took their places on the county’s 23-member bench on Tuesday, writes Carl Hessler for The Times Herald.
Norristown is the county seat of Montgomery County, making it home to the county court system, but it was also home to newly minted Judge Rothstein, who was born and raised in Norristown.
Rothstein and Saltz join a bench “steeped in tradition,” one that is “a collection of exceptional judges,” President Judge Thomas M. DelRicci said. The president judge said the new judges have “stellar reputations” and described them as being “intellectually gifted and soundly grounded” and said they have “unwavering integrity and a deep sense of caring.”
