Hon. Robert S. Rose Appointed as Administrative Judge for Sixth Judicial District
NEW YORK - Chief Administrative Judge Jonathan Lippman today announced the appointment of Supreme Court Justice Robert S. Rose as Administrative Judge for the Sixth Judicial District. The appointment was made with the approval of Chief Judge Judith S. Kaye after consultation with Presiding Justice Anthony V. Cardona of the Appellate Division, Third Department. Judge Rose will replace Judge Patrick D. Monserrate, who is returning to the trial court bench after serving as Administrative Judge in the Sixth District for the past four years.

"I want to thank Judge Monserrate for his hard work and dedication to the courts and the public over the past several years," said Judge Lippman. "I am delighted to appoint Judge Rose to the position of Administrative Judge. He is both a diligent and knowledgeable jurist who has the respect and admiration of his colleagues. He is the right person to lead the Sixth District in meeting the great challenges that face the district and the court system as we enter the 21st century."

Judge Rose graduated from the Albany Law School of Union University in 1968. After several years in the military, he joined the Unified Court System as a Law Clerk in 1974. He went on to serve as Assistant District Attorney in Broome County before entering private practice. Judge Rose was elected to the Supreme Court in January of 1988.

The appointment is effective January 1, 1999.
