STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, APRIL 19, 2017.....For the past three years District Court judges have relied on attorney Joseph Ditkoff for advice. If his nomination is confirmed to the Appeals Court, the 45-year-old will join the panel that provides rulings and opinions on all manner of lower-court decisions.

After spending about 15 years handling appellate matters for the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office Ditkoff in March 2014 became general counsel to the Administrative Office of the District Court, helping guide judges and writing rules for the civil commitment of people whose substance addictions create a risk of harm, according to his resume and testimony at his confirmation hearing.
