Gene D. Cohen, retired judge and partner at Cohen Seglias Pallas Greenhall & Furman, said Dougherty is a capable administrator.
“Kevin is one of the hardest-working judges around,” Cohen said. “He took over the Family Court and it seems to have done very well under his administration.”
Cohen added Dougherty would not be the first Family Court judge to become administrative judge of the trial division, noting that Judge Alex Bonavitacola, a former president judge of the First Judicial District and trial division administrative judge, came from the family division in the mid-90s.
