We at NITA would like to congratulate Judge Richard M. Markus for his outstanding achievement as he was awarded the 2015 Thomas J. Moyer Award for Judicial Excellence at the Ohio Judicial Conference Annual Meeting in Columbus, Ohio State Bar Association. Judge Markus, along with one other recipient, received this recognition of outstanding commitment to the administration of justice that Chief Justice Moyer exhibited. The award was established in 2010 in honor of the late chief justice and is continuously awarded to a current or former Ohio judge who displays excellent qualities with integrity and fairness.
Judge Markus has not only served in the judicial court system, but he is also an author and a teacher. He attended Law School at Harvard University and went on to present many lectures to lawyers and judges. Consequently, Judge Markus is a co-founder of NITA. He has contributed his teaching skills widely here in order to help others enhance their advocacy skills. He has served as a Faculty member for a number of our programs since 2006 including Building Trial Skills and Public Service Attorney Trial Skills.
