According to the Book of Mormon, Cezoram, was the eighth Nephite chief judge (ca 30 BC). In the 62nd year of the reign of the judges, or 30 BC, Nephi, son of Helaman, gave up the judgement seat and thence devoted himself to spreading the gospel.. Unfortunately, no more than four years had passed, and Cezoram was murdered by the Gadianton robbers. No sooner did his son replace him, than he was murdered also, by the followers of Gadianton. After that, the government fell into the hands of those robbers, and it is not known what happened with the judgement-seat until Nephi came back to call the people to repentance. Cezoram should not be confused with Seezoram, a Gadianton robber with a similar sounding name.
