Long-serving Glendale judge reappointed

The state’s longest-serving sitting court judge has been reappointed to the bench in Glendale.

Glendale City Court Judge Elizabeth Finn was chosen for a fifth two-year term earlier this week by the City Council.

Finn has been on the city court since 2003. She served as a Phoenix Municipal Court judge for 23 years before taking over in Glendale, giving her more than 30 years on the bench.

Finn has developed a treatment model court designed to help DUI and domestic violence offenders, created a multi-city program to increase the number of protection orders served and brought in grants to help police, prosecutors and the courts cooperate.
