Justice Melody Stewart Makes History On The Ohio Supreme Court
After taking the bench earlier this month, Justice Melody Stewart will be ceremonially sworn in to the Ohio Supreme Court on Thursday.
Stewart previously served as a judge on Ohio’s Eighth District Court of Appeals. Other hats she's worn include a professor of law at Cleveland Marshall, a music major at the University of Cincinnati, and a Ph.D. in Case Western Reserve University's Social Sciences school. She says the variety of her background influences her actions behind the bench.
"I consider myself a lifelong learner, so the more you learn about different things, I think the better informed your decisions are," Stewart says.
