McGrady was re-elected by acclimation during a Wednesday meeting of the circuit’s 68 other judges. In 2009, he was elected to succeed Circuit Judge Robert J. Morris Jr., appointed to fill a vacancy on the Second District Court of Appeal.

The new term for McGrady, who has been a judge in the circuit since 1999, will officially begin on July 1 and will last until June 30, 2013.

The Chief Judge is constitutionally responsible for the administrative supervision of the courts and court staff within the Sixth Circuit, which serves almost 1.5 million residents in the two counties.

Judge McGrady thanked his fellow judges in release and noted that “Like the other two branches of government, the Judicial Branch is being challenged by today’s economic conditions, but our judges remain committed to a just court system that is accessible to all our citizens".
