More On Judge Cleland's Superior Court Nomination

WFRM

McKean County President Judge John Cleland has been nominated by Governor Ed Rendell to fill a vacant position on state Superior Court.

The announcement came early this afternoon through a news release issued by the Governor’s office. The Governor is submitting the name of Judge Robert Freeberg of Northampton County to fill the second vacancy on the Superior Court created by the election of two former Superior Court Judges, Seamus McCaffery and Debra Todd who were elected to the state Supreme Court last November.

Cleland may have an easier time than previous nominees since he is a Republican being nominated by a Democratic governor.

The Republican-controlled Senate rejected an earlier group nominated by Rendell to succeed four judges who left before their terms were completed.

Judge Cleland has served as President Judge of McKean County Common Pleas Court since 1984, when he was appointed to the bench by Governor Dick Thornburgh. He was subsequently elected to a full term in 1985 and retained in 1995 and 2005.

For eight years, Judge Cleland served as the Co-Chair of the Education Committee of the Pennsylvania Conference of State Trial Judges and was responsible for planning the continuing education for the commonwealth’s trial judges.

He has also served on various Supreme Court committees addressing procedural rules, statewide court computerization, gender bias, the administration of the minor judiciary courts and bio-hazard security issues.

Judge Cleland graduated from Denison University in 1969 and received his Juris Doctorate with honors from The National Law Center of The George Washington University in 1972.
