TOPEKA – Chief Justice Lawton R. Nuss announced Thursday the Kansas Supreme Court has reappointed Judge Phillip Fromme to a two-year term as chief judge of the 4th judicial district, effective Feb. 1, 2016, to Dec. 31, 2017.

Fromme has served as district judge in the 4th judicial district since 1996. He presides over cases in Anderson, Coffey, Franklin and Osage counties.

“We are glad that Judge Fromme agreed to serve another two years as chief judge, providing continuity in capable leadership in the 4th judicial district,” Nuss said.

“I appreciate the confidence shown in me by the Supreme Court, and the employees and judges of the 4th judicial district,” Fromme said “I look forward to serving the people of my district for another two years.”

Fromme lives in Burlington, and is a graduate of Washburn University and Washburn University School of Law.

Each of Kansas’ 31 judicial districts has a chief judge who, in addition to his or her judicial responsibilities, has general control over case assignments within the district, as well as general supervisory authority over the administrative and clerical functions of the court.
