Bogdan is new Superior Court Judge


On August 10, 2017, the Senate confirmed, in a 7-0 vote, the appointment of Wesley M. Bogdan as an Associate Judge for the Commonwealth Superior Court.

Bogdan succeeds judge David A. Wiseman who retired in May 2016. One year later, Governor Ralph DLG. Torres nominated Bogdan, who was then legal counsel of the Office of the Governor. The Senate Committee on Executive Appointments and Government Investigations held a public hearing on August 4, 2017, to review the qualifications of Bogdan to serve as an associate judge. He was confirmed six days later.

Bogdan will be sworn in by Commonwealth Supreme Court Chief Justice Alexandro C. Castro on a date yet to be determined.
