Montgomery County Juvenile Court Judge Anthony Capizzi will become president of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges next July, according to a press release from the Ohio Supreme Court.
Capizzi recently was elected as president-elect by the NCJFCJ Board of Directors and will serve in that capacity until taking the president’s title, the release said.
The release said Capizzi is a member of several committees of the NCJFCJ, which “seeks to improve the family court system and court practices and to raise awareness of the core issues that touch the lives of the nation’s children and families — juvenile justice issues such as child trauma, implicit bias and shackling reform — and family law issues — such as domestic/family violence, child custody, and family relationships effected by divorce and/or non-married families — all encompass the work of the NCJFCJ.”
The first NCJFCJ president was from Ohio as were three of the first four, the release said. Capizzi will be the 11th president from Ohio. Lucas County Juvenile Court Judge Denise Navarre Cubbon also was picked to serve a second term on the board.
Capizzi, a longtime private attorney in family law, served as an acting judge in the Dayton Municipal Court before his election.
Capizzi will be sworn in as NCJFCJ president July 18, 2017, at the 80th annual conference in Washington, D.C., and that he will invite Ohio juvenile and family court judges to attend.
