Judge Mary Kaye Bozza proudly announces that remodeling construction will soon begin in the lower level of the Lyndhurst City Hall to provide additional Court space. This project will not cost any additional monies to the City of Lyndhurst, the cities in the jurisdiction or the residents. We anticipate using the new space for Jury Trials, Probation Violation hearings, Temporary/Criminal Protection Order hearings, prisoner video conferences, Evidentiary Motion hearings and Civil Dockets. We anticipate completion in the Spring of 2010.
 
Judge Bozza is a mentor for the Lawyer to Lawyer Mentoring Program designed by the Supreme Court's Commission on Professionalism. This year she has been matched with Darcy, a newly licensed lawyer. Judge Bozza is committed to meet with the young lawyer for one year.
 
The Court's latest presentation of the Women's "Make the Right Choice" program was held on Friday November 6, 2009 at the Lyndhurst Community Center. There were over 50 women in attendance. Substance abuse counselor, Jayne Sestak was the main speaker. Ten students from Regina High School were present at this program for the purpose of furthering their education about the health risks that are associated with underage alcohol consumption. These students are members of the Students Against Drunk Driving at Regina. The Court received excellent comments from the students after the program.
 
The Court's next male audience of the "Make the Right Choice" program is scheduled on January 29, 2010. Substance abuse counselor, Bob Garrity, is expected to educate the men about the mental, physical and social health risks associated with alcohol and drug abuse. Additional motivational speakers address the rewards of sobriety. If you are interested in attending the Judge's outreach program, please contact Patti Anderson at (440) 461-6500 ext. 205 or visit our website at www.lyndhurstmunicipalcourt.org.

20 students from Mayfield High School's Introduction to Criminal Justice class visited the Lyndhurst Municipal Court for a field trip on November 18, 2009. Judge Bozza had time to address their questions after the criminal/traffic arraignment session. Teacher Ron Suchy accompanied the students for this opportunity.
 
On December 1st we welcomed 9 members of the Sister to Sister Program of Orange High School. This student achievement program is co-sponsored by Wilkes Management Consultants, the Zonta Club of Cleveland and Career Women of Distinction in Cuyahoga County. They viewed a criminal/traffic docket, followed by a question and answer session with Judge Bozza.
