DAVID LINTON SUN CHRONICLE STAFF
ATTLEBORO — A district court judge who
frequently sits on the bench in Attleboro District Court was confirmed today by
the Governor’s Council to be a superior court judge.
Judge Angel Kelley Brown was approved by the
council by a 6-2 vote, according to a spokeswoman for the council.
Kelley Brown has been an associate district
court judge for three years assigned to the Brockton District Court. But she
has spent much of her time on the bench in Attleboro District Court. Associate
district court judges serve on the bench in different district courts in
various regions of the state.
She was nominated last month by Gov. Deval
Patrick and fills a vacancy on the superior court created by the retirement of
Judge Barbara Dortch-Okara.
Kelley Brown moved to Boston in 2005 and
worked for two years as a clinical instructor at Harvard Law School and two
years as an Assistant United States Attorney in the major crimes unit.
She is a graduate of Colgate University and
Georgetown University Law Center. She also received a master of laws
degree in trial advocacy at Temple University.
