Judge James T. Borchard swears in Judge Brittany Dicken

Saginaw County officially has a new Judge.

Brittany A. Dicken was sworn in Wednesday night after winning the seat in the Tenth Circuit Court over opponent Megan Cottington-Heath in November.  During the ceremony, Judge James T. Borchard administered the oath of office.

“I was so fortunate to have the people that I started with actually be here today,” said Dicken, who began her work in the courts as a law clerk for Borchard, “swearing me in for that seat that I started with the courts in. It feels like it was meant to be.”

Dicken was an attorney for Friend of the Court, as well as a Circuit Court Referee before running for the seat. She will replace the retiring Judge Borchard on the bench, presiding over family law cases in Saginaw County.
