      Tuesdays in the Newsroom: Behind the Scenes at the Courthouse

      The brick courthouse on Main Street in Edgartown houses, among other things, the Superior Court for Dukes County, the trial court of general jurisdiction for civil and criminal matters. While a succession of judges have presided over felony trials and business disputes in the last four decades, the operation of the court has been overseen by just one man, Clerk of Courts Joseph E. Sollitto. Mr. Sollitto, who empanels juries, hears parking ticket appeals and supervises dockets for the hundreds of cases filed each year in Dukes County, will retire in January from a job he has been elected to seven times. What really goes on behind the scenes at the courthouse? You can ask Joe yourself when Tuesdays in the Newsroom returns with an appearance by our inimitable clerk. Tuesdays in the Newsroom is a monthly discussion series produced by the Vineyard Gazette and held in the off-season for people who want more engagement with the news. Events are free to subscribers of the Gazette; non-subscribers pay $10 at the door. Admission includes refreshments. Space is limited, so advance registration is required.
