Mailloux appointed to Supreme Court Advisory Committee on Probate Rules
The Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee on Probate Rules announced the appointment of former Probate Judge Randolph Mailloux as a key member of the committee. Mailloux was selected for his strong interest and previous commitment as a sitting probate judge to bring Maine’s Probate Court system in line with the Federal Court’s lead for electronic filing.
“I am very pleased and proud to have been selected to serve on this committee, as this group of eight members has single-handedly brought electronic filing into the probate courts with absolutely no administrative budget whatsoever,” said Mailloux. Currently, Oxford, Cumberland, Penobscot and York counties are the four county probate courts which are running the pilot program. Waldo County, along with the other remaining 11 counties, is scheduled to go online May 1, 2013.
“Randy Mailloux has been an invaluable asset to our committee,” commented Judge Dana Hanley, who is chairman of the committee. Hanley went on to say, “Randy is committed to bringing whatever efficiencies are possible into the Probate Court system and has not only the necessary energy to make it a reality, but also firsthand experience as the former judge of probate for Waldo County.” Maine’s Probate Court system is leading the way for all state courts in the area of electronic filing without any real additional cost to either county government or the citizens of Maine, which in this day and age is not something you hear very often.
Randy Mailloux is a native of Maine and for the past 34 years has made his home in Belfast with his wife, Toni, along with their children and grandchildren. Mailloux was a candidate for judge of probate for Waldo County in the recent election and looks forward to the opportunity, once again, to give back to the citizens of Waldo County in the form of public service.
