Specialized Court Programs

The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania operates two separate specialized court programs: a Mental Health Protocol and a Reentry Court. The Mental Health Protocol is headed by Magistrate Judge Elizabeth Hey and meets monthly. The Reentry Court, also known as the STAR Court (Supervision to Aid Reentry), is headed by Circuit Judge L. Felipe Restrepo, Circuit Judge Theodore McKee, and Magistrate Judge Timothy Rice. The Reentry Court meets biweekly. An annual report summarizing the Reentry Court program is attached.

Please contact one of the listed judges if you are interested in additional details on court sessions or volunteer opportunities.
