Amy Corrigall Jones has been chosen to serve as the administrative judge in Summit County Common Pleas Court for the fifth time.

Jones has served in this role during the pandemic, making tough choices about safety protocols and how the court would function. The court has handled most matters via telephone or videoconferencing since March.

The administrative judge, selected annually by the court’s judges, is responsible for the administration, docket and calendar of the court’s general division.

Alison Breaux was selected as the presiding judge for this year. This judge calls meetings to discuss and resolve administrative problems in all divisions of Common Pleas Court, which includes the general, domestic relations, juvenile and probate divisions.

Jones was first elected to the bench in 2012. Breaux joined the court in 2016.
