Timothy J. Trost will return to the staff of the county attorney's office and serve as counsel for the Erie County Medical Center, government spokesmen said Friday.
Trost, 50, was defeated for a full 10-year term as judge on the Erie County Family Court last month. Gov. Cuomo appointed him to the domestic-relations court in May. A former Republican county legislator and GOP town leader, Trost served in the county attorney's office for 2 1/2 years before the appointment.
