HARRISBURG — Back Mountain District Judge Brian J. Tupper was recently recertified as a member of Pennsylvania’s Unified Judicial System after completing a program conducted by the Minor Judiciary Education Board and the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts.

The program, located in Harrisburg, is a week-long course designed to ensure that district judges remain current in legal topics and management techniques.

This year’s curriculum included: updates on the motor vehicle code, debt collection, homeowner’s association law and condominium law, landlord and tenant disputes, ethics, gang awareness, alternative dispute resolution, language access, dog law and animal cruelty, crash reconstruction, and strangulation law.

Pennsylvania’s district judges are required by statute to complete continuing education coursework.
