W. Milton Nuzum III, has been named director of Judicial & Court Services, a position he has held on an acting basis since May 2011, the Ohio Supreme Court announced Monday.
As the division’s director, Nuzum oversees the Case Management Section, the Children, Families & the Court Section, the Dispute Resolution Section, the Domestic Violence Program, the Interpreter Services Program, and the Specialized Dockets Section. He will continue to serve as director of the Judicial College too.
“Milt has done a terrific job serving as the acting director of the division by providing patient leadership to staff, and quietly assisting courts throughout the state on matters that require diplomacy and delicate handling,” Administrative Director Steven C. Hollon said. “In doing so, he places the position of the court and its programs above personal promotion.”
Nuzum earned his law degree from the Indiana University School of Law and graduated from The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy, where he received its Distinguished Alumni Award.
In addition to practicing as a pharmaceutical process engineer, pharmacist and attorney, he served as a Marietta Municipal Court judge for 13 years before joining the Supreme Court in 2007.
He is a member of the American Judges Association, where he served on its Board of Governors and as editor of “Benchmark.”
He is also a member of the National Association for Court Management and National Association of State Judicial Educators where he serves as a member of the International Committee and chair of its Futures Committee.
Nuzum recently presented papers at the International Organization for Judicial Training in Sydney, Australia and Bordeaux, France.
