Westport-Weston Probate Judge Kevin O'Grady has been on a medical leave of absence for more than a month.

In his absence, Fairfield Probate Judge Daniel Caruso is serving as the district's acting probate judge.

O'Grady, a Democrat, has been on the leave since the third week of August, according to his office, which had no information when he might return to his post.

Last year, O'Grady was elected to a fourth four-year term as probate judge, which at the time he told the Westport News he plans to be his last.
