for Lewis County Criminal and Supreme Court.
Mrs. Earl is retiring from the New York State Unified Court System after serving
the courts for over 26 years, all in Lewis County. She started with Lewis County
Family Court in 1994 and became Chief Clerk for Supreme and Criminal Court in
"There have been a lot of changes over the years, especially with all of the
developments in technology that have taken place," Mrs. Earl said. "I've truly
enjoyed the journey and have had the opportunity to work with so many great
judges over the past 26 years."
Mrs. Earl hasn't yet worked through all of her plans for retirement, but she will
remain in her post as the Town Justice in the town of West Turin.
Melissa Lopez, currently Chief Clerk for Lewis County Surrogate Court, will
temporarily take over the Chief Clerk role for Lewis County Court and Lewis
County Supreme Court until a permanent replacement is named.
We wish Mrs. Earl a happy retirement!
