BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — New York State Supreme Court Judge John Michalski has been immediately reinstated to the bench after taking time off from medical leave, according to a state supreme court spokesperson.

Michalski had been on medical leave for almost a year when he was injured in an incident involving a train in February 2021.

A courts spokesperson says Michalski had been trying to return to the bench since November 2021.

The incident involving a train was investigated by Depew police and the Erie County District Attorney and they determined no criminal conduct occurred.
