On November 21, 2013, the MBLA, in partnership with the Boston Bar Association (BBA), hosted a reception at the BBA to honor the black judges of the Massachusetts Judiciary.  The event featured introductory remarks from Chief Justice Roderick Ireland, MBLA President Abim Thomas, and Immediate Past-President Rachael Rollins. The MBLA also took the opportunity to congratulate and honor the newest appointee to the bench, MBLA’s former President and now BMC Judge Serge Georges, Jr.  The night provided a unique and informal opportunity for the public to meet the black judges of the Massachusetts Trial Courts, Appellate Courts and Administrative Courts.

Judges in attendance included:

The Honorable Frederick Brown
The Honorable Kimberly Budd
The Honorable Pamela Dashiell
The Honorable Kenneth Desmond
The Honorable Judith Dilday
