Governor Charlie Baker tapped Mark V. Green as the chief justice of the state Appeals Court, the chief executive’s office announced Tuesday.
Green is currently the court’s acting chief justice, taking the place of Justice Scott Kafker, whom Baker appointed to the Supreme Judicial Court.
“Justice Green has proven throughout his impressive thirty-five year career that he will treat all those before him in the courts fairly and impartially, and will continue to do so as Chief Justice with the Governor’s Council advice and consent,” said Baker in a statement released by his office.
Green was appointed to the state’s land court in 1997 by former governor Bill Weld, Baker’s political mentor. Acting governor Jane Swift elevated him to the Appeals Court in 2001.
The Mass. Bar Association’s chief legal counsel, Martin W. Healy, praised the pick.
Healy called Green “a problem solver, whose leadership on e-filing and technology improvements has been the antidote to the stale processes and delays that once defined the Appeals Court. While he is one of the longest serving justices on the court, he has the right kind of vision needed to keep the Appeals Court moving forward.”
