Broughton joins Family Court bench
Attorney-General David Parker has appointed five new District Court judges, including New Plymouth barrister Keryn Broughton of Ngā Rauru, Ngāti Ruanui and Ngāruahine descent.
That means 12 out of the 19 new District Court Judges appointed so far this year are Māori.
Ms Broughton has practised exclusively in family law since 2010, and she will serve on the Family Court in Palmerston North.
