A 57-year-old county judge has died after suffering a heart attack in his upstate New York courtroom.


A spokesman for the state court system says Putman County Court Judge James Reitz was stricken on the bench Friday morning. Court officers performed CPR and used an automatic electronic defibrillator (AED) to try to resuscitate him before he was taken to a hospital by ambulance.


Court system spokesman Lucian Calfen says Reitz died shortly after arriving at the hospital.


Reitz, a resident of Mahopac, had been a county judge since 2007 and was also an acting justice with the state Supreme Court. He previously worked as a lawyer in private practice.
