Judge Casement Biography

Honorable David A. Casement, a non-attorney judge, was first appointed to the position of District Magistrate Judge for Chautauqua County in 1987 and has served in that capacity for all but four years since then. Because Chautauqua and Montgomery counties are in the same judicial district, he is assigned by the Chief District Judge to hear cases in both counties, generally spending two days each week in Sedan, two days in Coffeyville and one day in Independence. Most of his caseload involves probate, bad debt and traffic cases, although he also handles criminal and juvenile cases in Chautauqua County.
