Stephanie Zelman-Thanasiu Announces Retirement

To all court staff, bankruptcy practitioners, and others appearing in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Ohio:

Courtroom Deputy Stephanie Zelman-Thanasiu has retired, effective June 30, 2021, after more than 36 years of outstanding service with this court. At her request, she is leaving without any fanfare. Anyone who would like to send her a card, note, or simply wish her well may do so care of Judge Harris’s Chambers, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, 201 Superior Avenue, East, Cleveland, Ohio 44114, and we will forward any correspondence to her. I would like to publicly thank Stephanie for her years of invaluable service to the bankruptcy court and to everyone appearing before it and to wish her a long, healthy, and much-deserved retirement.

Anyone with questions about matters pending before Judge Harris may continue to contact chambers staff through the number for the courtroom deputy or by contacting one of Judge Harris’s law clerks.
