May 5, 2004

Rhode Island Governor Donald L. Carcieri has nominated Associate Judge George E. Healy, Jr. to the position of Chief Judge of the Workers’ Compensation Court. Judge Healy’s nomination is subject to Senate approval.

“Judge Healy is highly regarded as a jurist who is fair, balanced and sensitive to the needs of both management and labor,” said Governor Carcieri. “As one of the leaders of the workers’ compensation reform movement of the 1990s, he is well versed on the complexities of the law. I believe Judge Healy has the temperament and the administrative capability to lead the Workers’ Compensation Court with distinction and integrity.”

Judge Healy has served as Associate Justice of the Workers’ Compensation Court since 1991. He earned a bachelor of arts from Northeastern University and a law degree from Suffolk University. He is an adjunct faculty member at Roger Williams University and served as a member of the Rhode Island Commission on Judicial Tenure and Discipline from 1993 to 2001.
