Christopher Wimbush was elected Chief Judge of the Student Association Student Court on Tuesday.
Wimbush, a senior, has served on the Student Court since November 2006. He has also held various positions within the SA including associate student senate parliamentarian and vice president for judicial and legislative affairs.
During his tenure as vice president for judicial and legislative affairs, Wimbush was responsible for dealing with violations of the SA constitution and by-laws. As chief judge, Wimbush said his working knowledge of the SA constitution will be helpful.
“As chief judge, my job is basically to make sure everything runs smoothly,” Wimbush said.
The Student Court is responsible for reviewing complaints filed by members of the SA. In the past, the Student Court has ruled on cases concerning SA elections and disputes over SA senate meetings.
“We don’t act very often but when we do, its usually pretty meaningful,” Wimbush said.
Wimbush will serve on the Student Court with former SA Executive Vice President Brand Kroeger and former SA Senator Kevin Kozlowski. The graduate seat on the court is vacant and must be filled by SA President Vishal Aswani.
