Statement of Attorney General Maura Healey on the Retirement of Judge James McHugh from the Gaming Commission

“I want to thank Judge McHugh for his years of service on the Gaming Commission and for his commitment to public service. As one of the initial commissioners, Judge McHugh helped shape the policies and procedures by which the commission has functioned. He brought his judicial insight to bear on the many legal issues that have arisen with this new industry. During his more than a quarter century serving on the bench, Judge McHugh presided over many significant matters and his tireless work led to important reforms that ensure a more equal access to justice for all Massachusetts residents. Judge McHugh will leave a lasting impact on the legal profession, those of us in public service, and the people of the Commonwealth. We thank Judge McHugh for his significant contributions and wish him all the best in his well-deserved retirement.” – Attorney General Maura Healey
