Judge Derrick Chan was sworn in Thursday as the associate judge of the Intermediate Court of Appeals.
Chan was appointed by Gov. David Ige to fill the vacancy following the retirement of former Associate Judge Daniel Foley in December 2016. The state Senate confirmed Chan’s appointment on March 3, 2017.
Chan was first appointed as First Circuit Court judge in August 2000 and served as the deputy chief judge and administrative judge of the criminal division from January 2005 through July 2009. On Dec. 31, 2009, he became chief judge of the First Circuit.
Chan was also named Jurist of the Year in 2016.
Chan will serve a 10-year term as associate judge of the Intermediate Court of Appeals.
