  A 12-year veteran of Pennsylvania Superior Court is now the appeals court's newest president judge.

The position entails supervision of the court's budget, spending, personnel, scheduling and case management. Bender is a graduate of Penn State and Duquesne School of Law. He's been a magisterial district judge, a private-practice lawyer and an Allegheny County prosecutor.
