President Judge Kevin Brobson will offer a new voice and perspective to Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court. He will be a voice of reason, a defender of the law as it is written, and a champion of fair and impartial justice.
Born and raised in Lycoming County, Kevin is the son of a retired Pennsylvania State Trooper and grandsonof former Philadelphia Police Officer. His mother worked at the Little League Baseball’s National
headquarters in Williamsport.
Kevin went to college and law school in Central Pennsylvania and then clerked for a federal judge in Philadelphia before becoming an associate with Pittsburgh-headquartered Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney. He stayed in private practice for 14 years, working in commercial litigation and administrative law, eventually becoming a shareholder and practice group chair in the firm.
Since 2010, Kevin has served as a judge on the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, a statewide intermediate appellate court one step below the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The Commonwealth Court is entrusted with the important responsibility of ensuring that government, at all levels, follows the law. He has not shied away from the controversial cases during his tenure. He has ruled in favor of gun rights, school choice, and, perhaps most notably, the justiciability of constitutional challenges to congressional districts drawn by the state legislature. His colleagues expressed their confidence in his collegiality, professionalism, and leadership when, in December 2020, they elected Kevin to serve as the 10th President Judge of the Commonwealth Court.
President Judge Brobson and his wife Lauren are raising their three children in a rural community just outside of Harrisburg, Dauphin County. Kevin is an active and engaged father and husband, often found coaching teams, cheering on the sidelines, running the after-school family shuttle, cooking dinner, and walking the family dogs.
Megan Sullivan is a veteran litigator with twenty years of legal experience as both a criminal prosecutor and civil attorney. Over the course of her career, Sullivan developed substantial trial and legal experience as a Prosecutor in the Chester County District Attorney’s office, as a Deputy Attorney General in the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, a litigation attorney in private practice, and general counsel for a state university. Sullivan’s extensive background in both criminal and civil litigation, which includes arguing cases before both the Commonwealth and Superior Courts, provides her with a breadth of knowledge that makes her well prepared for an appellate court position.
As a prosecutor for more than 12 years, Sullivan proved to be a fierce advocate for victims and the citizens of the Commonwealth. She worked for nearly a decade as an Assistant District Attorney in Chester County from 2002 to 2012. In 2017, Sullivan became a PA Deputy Attorney General where she worked to protect taxpayer dollars through her investigation and prosecution of claims of insurance fraud committed by individuals and corporations in every industry throughout the state. She also spent an extensive period of time in the appeals unit, drafting briefs and arguing appeals before the Superior Court. Through her experience in both the state Attorney General’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office, she has handled all aspects of criminal prosecutions and prosecuted an extensive range of crimes, ranging from child abuse to white collar fraud.
In addition to her experience as a criminal prosecutor, Sullivan served as assistant general counsel to West Chester University, negotiating contracts, litigating labor arbitrations, and advising university departments on federal and state regulatory and higher education laws, as well as other legal matters. She also spent several years in private practice representing businesses, municipalities, and educational institutions in a range of civil litigation. Her work included defending the Commonwealth and various municipalities on legal matters including employment complaints, and civil claims.
Born and raised in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, Judge J. Andrew “Drew” Crompton graduated from Phil-Mont Christian Academy High School, Dickinson College and Widener School of Law in Harrisburg.
In his role as General Counsel to the Senate Republicans, Judge Crompton served as a vital link among all branches of government, providing leadership and counsel in the passage of vital legislation affecting Pennsylvanians in every walk of life.
He was the point lawyer for dozens of high-profile cases including redistricting, negotiating a settlement with the NCAA, budget disputes and separation of power cases (often to rein in the power of the Governor or other executives). Judge Crompton also participated in the seminal U.S. Supreme Court case, DC v. Heller, to protect the 2nd Amendment. Prior to leaving the Senate, Judge Crompton intervened on behalf of many Republican Senators to oppose the use of taxpayer dollars for abortion.
Judge Crompton’s current appointed term to the Commonwealth Court runs from January 2020 to January 2022. He was confirmed by a 42-7 vote of the Senate, which included the support of every Republican member. Hailed as straightforward, thoughtful and objective, Judge Crompton’s decisions have served as important examples.
Judge Crompton and his wife, Megan, have been married for 17 years. They live in Silver Spring Township, Cumberland County with their two daughters, Mallory, 13, and Morgan, 8.
Proudly hailing from Northwest Pennsylvania, Stacy’s grassroots upbringing will bring a refreshing perspective to our appellate court system.
Her guiding principles are to seek justice, love kindness, and to walk humbly in living out these principles. The daughter of a former Pennsylvania State Trooper and a certified medical technician, Stacy initially pursued a career in broadcast communications before an interest in providing legal aid to underserved communities motivated her to attend law school. After successfully passing the bar exam in 2004, Stacy returned home to McKean County where her experience as a judicial law clerk first led her to consider serving as a judge.
Over the past 16 years, Stacy has practiced in a variety of legal areas, both transactional and in litigation, and has had the privilege of clerking for the PA Superior Court. She is the current president of the McKean County Bar Association, a certified mediator in conflict resolution, and has taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.
Stacy has actively served the PA GOP as a state committee person, county chairperson, and most recently as vice-chairperson of the PA GOP Legislative Review Committee and secretary for the Northwest Caucus. Stacy excels in legal research and writing and is a bold advocate for the rule of law. Stacy is actively involved in her community and her church. As a judge, she will restore the public’s confidence and trust in Pennsylvania’s judiciary by emphasizing integrity and due process. Most importantly, Stacy can always be trusted to practice judicial restraint by adhering to our federal and state constitutions.
Stacy has been a Pennsylvania resident her entire life, and currently resides in Bradford, McKean County with her husband of 16 years, Curt, and their two children, Lucas and Cora.
