New judge for Maricopa County Superior Court

Mark H. Brain has been appointed as a judge in Maricopa County Superior Court.

The announcement was made Wednesday by Gov. Jan Brewer.

Brain has served since 2006 as a court commissioner for Superior Court, where he presided over juvenile cases.

He fills the bench vacancy created by the Jan. 4 death of Judge Pendleton Gaines.

Brain graduated from the University of Michigan School of Law in 1988 and was admitted to the State Bar of Arizona later that same year.

Prior to his appointment as a court commissioner, Brain worked for the two Phoenix-area law firms where he specialized in civil matters.
