FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


The Louisiana Supreme Court announced today Sharonda R. Williams and Mark A. Delphin have been appointed to the Judiciary Commission of Louisiana, for a four-year term commencing December 18, 2007 and January 11, 2008, respectively. The Judiciary Commission is a nine-member constitutional body, empowered to review allegations of judicial misconduct and to recommend to the Supreme Court that a judge be sanctioned when misconduct is proven by clear and convincing evidence.


Williams, of New Orleans, was selected to serve on the Judiciary Commission by the Conference of Court of Appeal Judges to succeed W. Kyle Green. She received her undergraduate degree from Xavier University New Orleans in 1994, a medical degree from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill School of Medicine in 1998, and her law degree from Loyola University New Orleans School of Law in 2001. She is currently an associate attorney in the general litigation section of the Sher Garner Cahill Richter Klein & Hilbert law firm in New Orleans.


Delphin, of Lake Charles, was also selected to serve on the Judiciary Commission by the Conference of Court of Appeal Judges and he succeeds Richard L. Edrington. Delphin received his undergraduate degree from Northwestern State University of Louisiana in 1978 and his law degree from Louisiana State University Law School in 1981. He is currently in the private practice of law, primarily handling civil cases, and is licensed to practice before all Louisiana state and federal courts.


The Judiciary Commission also has named Ron S. Macaluso of Hammond, as the 2008 Chair and Len G. Ciaravella, of Shreveport as the 2008 Vice-Chair. Ciaravella was selected to serve on the Judiciary Commission in 2005 by the Louisiana District Court Judges Association to succeed Donald L. Horton. Macaluso, of Hammond, was selected to serve on the Judiciary Commission in 2005 by the Conference of Court of Appeal Judges to succeed Senator Donald G. Kelly.


The Judiciary Commission was created by the Louisiana Constitution, and as such, it is not a Board or Commission subject to a particular branch of government.
