Norwood Star reports:
In mid-April, Norwood’s Law Director, Josh Berkowitz, was named Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge.

Cincinnati Business Courier reports:
Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Josh Berkowitz said when he arrived at work this morning around 8 a.m. it appeared that a fire drill was being conducted.
