Attorney Camille F. Sarrouf Jr. of North Andover was named Wednesday as an associate justice of the Superior Court by Gov. Charlie Baker.
Sarrouf began his legal career as an assistant district attorney in the Middlesex County District Attorney’s office and served from 1993 to 1995, prosecuting more than 150 trials. He entered private practice as an attorney for Sarrouf, Tarricone & Flemming, and later joined Sarrouf Corso as a partner before forming Sarrouf/Gibson in 2008.
“Attorney Sarrouf’s extensive courtroom experience, in conjunction with his dedication to charitable organizations, demonstrates that he has both the legal acumen and the proper temperament to serve on the Superior Court,” said Baker.
Since 2017, Sarrouf has served as chair of the Board of Governors of St. Jude Research Hospital, and previously as vice chair since 2013. Before that, he also served from 2009 to 2013 as president and chair of the board of directors of American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude. Sarrouf earned his juris doctorate from Suffolk University Law School in 1992, and his bachelor’s from Northeastern University in 1989.
The Superior Court is comprised of 82 justices in 20 courthouses in all 14 counties of the Commonwealth. It has original jurisdiction in civil actions over $25,000 and in matters where equitable relief is sought. The Superior Court also has exclusive original jurisdiction of first-degree murder cases and original jurisdiction of all other crimes.
Judicial nominations are subject to the advice and consent of the Governor’s Council. Applicants for judicial openings are reviewed by the Judicial Nominating Commission and recommended to the governor.
