2. Groton Town Clerk Betsy Moukawsher swore in her husband, Thomas Moukawsher, as Superior Court judge Thursday night. There’s no requirement that it be done in a particular place, so she swore him in at home in the living room while her 12-year-old son, Alex McAusher, held the Bible.
“I do it so often, but then it’s an honor really, to swear in a superior court judge but also my husband. I’m very proud,” she said. Thomas Moukawsher had been interviewed the prior week by the judicial joint committee of the state senate and house. A formal ceremony will be held at a later date, yet to be determined.
