December 20, 2023 – presenting Judge Lara Weathersbee.
The Howard County Bar Association is pleased to announce that after a long selection process featuring many extremely qualified candidates for the judicial vacancy left by the retirement of the Honorable Timothy J. McCrone, Governor Moore appointed [former] Magistrate Lara Weathersbee to be the newest Judge on the Circuit Court for Howard County.
Judge Weathersbee admirably served the Court and the County as a Family Court Magistrate since 2012 and before that she had extensive experience as an Assistant State’s Attorney and aa a family law practitioner. Her Honor is a Past President of HCBA and continues to be a valuable part of our Bar and our Board. Although Judge Weathersbee officially took the oath on December 22, 2023 in a very small ceremony in order to have her college daughters, Kira and Mia, present, the traditional swearing-in ceremony will take place later in January. This will allow more courthouse justice partners, the Bar, and other community members to be included after the busy holiday season.
We were proud our Committee sent the Governor a strong pool of candidates and we are grateful the Governor made the difficult but fantastic choice in his appointment. On behalf of everyone in the Bar, we offer our Congratulations to Judge Lara Weathersbee! 🎊👩⚖️
