The nomination, which was among more than a dozen Malloy announced on Friday, including two for the Appellate Court, require approval from the General Assembly.
Family Support Magistrate Jane K. Grossman is serving a three-year term with the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch, following her appointment by Malloy in 2011. Previously, she was a staff attorney with New Haven Legal Assistance, representing low-income individuals in primarily family, criminal and housing matters. She received her bachelor's degree from Quinnipiac University and her law degree from Quinnipiac University School of Law.
“I am grateful to Governor Malloy for this opportunity and look forward to serving the people of Connecticut in this new capacity,” Grossman said.
“In selecting judicial nominees and reviewing the pool of candidates,
I look to choose individuals with the experience, temperament and
skills to be thoughtful, reasoned and fair jurists,” Malloy said. “It is
a careful, meticulous process because we want to ensure that the men
and women who sit on our bench will serve our state with distinction,
fairness, competence, ethics, and above all, respect for the people of
Connecticut. I am pleased to nominate these two outstanding judges for
elevation to the appellate bench, and proud to nominate these 16
outstanding attorneys for appointment to the Superior Court.”
