Senate confirms Dem as Suffolk judge

The State Senate last week confirmed the appointment of Democrat Richard Ambro, son of the late U.S. Rep. Jerome Ambro, as a county court judge in Suffolk.

The Wading River resident fills a vacancy left by Randall Hinrichs' election to the State Supreme Court.

Ambro had served as Hinrichs' law secretary. Gov. David A. Paterson nominated him for the post, which comes open again in the November election.
