Governor Doug Ducey recently named Coconino County Deputy County Attorney Brian Furuya to the Arizona Court of Appeals, Division I.
Furuya joined the Coconino County Attorney’s Office as Deputy County Attorney in January of 2016. During his time with the County, Furuya was responsible for health code enforcement litigation and zoning, among others.
“A huge congratulations is owed to Brian who has proven to be a devoted and well-respected member of the Coconino County team. His level-headed approach and friendly demeanor will be greatly missed, however, we are excited to see him appointed to this important judicial role,” said County Manager James Jayne.
Furuya not only brings excellence to the County in his role as Deputy County Attorney, he is committed to the community. Brian actively gives his time pro bono and is a past president of the State Bar of Arizona and the Coconino County Bar Association.
“Brian’s appointment to the Arizona Court of Appeals is wonderful for the residents of the state. Brian embodies goodness and respect and maintains an unending commitment to the United States Constitution. It has been an honor to work alongside him. I look forward to calling him Judge Furuya,” said County Attorney Bill Ring.
Furuya’s appointment comes after the retirement of Judge Kenton D. Jones.
