Judicial selection

The method of judicial selection for the California Superior Courts is officially nonpartisan election of judges , though many judges join the court via gubernatorial appointment . Once judges are appointed, they compete in the next general election following appointment.

If an incumbent Superior Court judge files for re-election and draws no opponent, that race does not appear on the ballot. If the race is contested, the candidate who wins more than 50% of the vote is elected. If no candidate receives more than 50%, the top two compete in a runoff in the general election in November. [1]

California is one of 43 states that hold elections for judicial positions. To learn more about judicial selection in California, click here .

Selection method

The 1,535 judges of the California Superior Courts compete in nonpartisan races in even-numbered years. If a candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote in the June primary election, he or she is declared the winner; if no candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote, a runoff between the top two candidates is held during the November general election. [2] [3] [4] [5]

If an incumbent judge is running unopposed in an election, his or her name does not appear on the ballot. The judge is automatically re-elected following the general election. [2]

The chief judge of any given superior court is selected by peer vote of the court's members. He or she serves in that capacity for one or two years, depending on the county. [2]

Qualifications Candidates are required to have 10 years of experience as a law practitioner or as a judge of a court of record. [2]

Election rules

Primary election.

Only candidates for the superior courts compete in primary elections.

  • If a superior court judge runs unopposed for re-election, his or her name does not appear on the ballot and he or she is automatically re-elected following the general election. [6] [7]
  • Write-in candidates may file to run against an incumbent within 10 days after the filing deadline passes if they are able to secure enough signatures (between 100 and 600, depending on the number of registered voters in the county). In that case, the incumbent would appear on the general election ballot along with an option to vote for a write-in candidate. [7]
  • In contested races, the candidate who receives a majority of all the votes in the primary wins the election. If no candidate receives a majority of the votes in the primary, the top two compete in the November general election. [8]

General election

  • Superior court candidates who advance from the primary election compete in the general election.
  • Superior court incumbents facing competition from write-in candidates appear on the ballot. [7] [8]

S.F. Judges Get Their New Assignments

Incoming San Francisco Superior Court Presiding Judge James McBride has released next year's judicial assignments. So where did Judge Gerardo Sandoval land?

Thank you for sharing.

SAN FRANCISCO — Incoming San Francisco Superior Court Presiding Judge James McBride released new judicial assignments Friday, with an eye toward reducing backlogged criminal dockets and finding a spot for a politician who ousted one of his colleagues.

McBride placed former county Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval in a family law department and reassigned three of the four judges in the court’s misdemeanor division.

Sandoval, who was termed out of his seat on the board of supervisors, beat Judge Thomas Mellon Jr. in a run-off election in November.

First-time judges are typically assigned to a misdemeanor courtroom, but Sandoval said he was “very excited” to join the court, no matter where.

“Does it matter when you go to the Super Bowl if you’re on the Green Bay Packers or the Cleveland Browns? You’re on the team, you’re in uniform, it’s exciting, that’s it,” he said.

Sandoval maintained a law practice while serving on the board of supervisors and was a deputy public defender before winning his first election in 2000. He said he expects to do well in family law.

“I think the question is the person’s personality and maturity and judgment,” he said.

The other notable changes involved the criminal courts at the Hall of Justice, where McBride replaced three misdemeanor judges and assigned a new criminal supervisor. Judges Kevin McCarthy, Susan Breall and Katherine Feinstein — McBride’s assistant presiding judge — will all leave their spots in the sometimes troubled misdemeanor division.

Breall was assigned to supervise San Francisco’s four misdemeanor courts in July 2007, after a report by the state Administrative Office of the Courts revealed that misdemeanors in the county went to trial at 8.7 times the statewide rate from 2004 to 2005, the last period studied in the report.

The misdemeanor overflow was causing delays in felony cases and occupying courtrooms that would normally deal with civil matters.

Breall said she told McBride to assign her where she “could be most useful as long as there’s a bathroom and a window.”

“I was brought [to misdemeanors] as someone with criminal experience to help clean up the backlog and also give guidance to some of my newer colleagues,” she said. “We’ve really cleaned up my department, with the help of the attorneys.”

The criminal backlog problem still holds McBride’s attention, but he said “the assignments don’t reflect any particular need to carry that agenda forward.”

In July 2007, 24 judges handled civil matters (excluding those in family law) and 21 dealt with criminal cases. Now, that roster is more evenly split, with 20 judges hearing civil matters and 21 criminal.

Judge Charles Haines, a former prosecutor who began presiding over the court’s newly minted felony settlement courtroom in June, will take over the supervision of the court’s criminal division from Judge Kay Tsenin, who has held the position twice.

Though Haines didn’t say he asked for the assignment, he said he “indicated I would be willing to do whatever the court needed me to do.”

The new assignments will take effect Jan. 12.

Judge Daniel A. Flores

I have the honor of serving as a San Francisco Superior Court Judge.  The people of my hometown bestowed this honor upon me in 2014 when they elected me into office. Before becoming a judge I was a lawyer and had the privilege of successfully representing hundreds of clients in civil and criminal cases. My career path has been driven by my desire to help people understand the complicated legal system. I ran for judge after thirteen years of practice because I realized that my ability to help would be greatly increased by being on the other side of the bench.

I continue to live in San Francisco with my wife and two children.

Personal History

I am the first in my family to be born in the United States.  My parents met in El Salvador and later immigrated to the US for a better life. The majority of both sides of their families followed in the years to come. Growing up surrounded by relatives that couldn't speak English exposed me to discrimination and taught me at an early age how important it is to be able to advocate for oneself. Dignity and justice, as I regretfully learned, is something we often have to fight for. 

While I was always a happy kid, I did have my share of troubles at school. These were mostly due to my unwillingness to accept actual/perceived injustices or disrespect and my immaturity to properly deal with the same. My folks moved out of SF when I was entering high school for fear that my trouble would escalate. Moving to the suburbs didn't change me, but it did expose me to a new environment.  At seventeen I realized that in order to not completely destroy my parents' pursuit of the American Dream I needed to do something - quick.  I joined the Marine Corps Reserve which kept me in line for the rest of my senior year and I left for boot camp two days after high school graduation. 

In addition to the Marines, I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to my parents for setting a great example of hard work and integrity and to the Future Leaders of America, a Latino leadership program that took me in based on the unused potential they saw.

Life in the Law

Upon my return from my initial military training, I enrolled at CSU, Sacramento. I obtained my bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice and I was on off to McGeorge School of Law on an academic scholarship.  While in law school, I externed with La Raza Centro Legal in San Francisco, was a Real Property Law tutor, and served as the president of the Latino Law Students Association. I graduated from law school, with honors, in 2001.

I began my career as a civil litigation attorney with the law firm of Ropers, Majeski, Kohn & Bentley.  In 2005, I opened my own practice which I kept until I was sworn in as a judge.  I enjoyed practicing law, helped a lot of people, and was recognized with various distinctions such as being named in the criminal defense list of the Northern California Super Lawyers that recognizes the top 5% of lawyers in Northern California. 

The biggest distinction of my career came on November 4, 2014 when the voters of San Francisco elected me to serve as Superior Court Judge. The campaign trail was tough, but interesting and educational. I enjoyed meeting people from all districts and neighborhoods. I met people with widely varying interests and political viewpoints and one thing remained constant - they all wanted a judge who would treat people with respect, work hard, and make fair decisions according to the law; not politics. I promised to be that judge and feel confident that I have been true to my word.

I thank you for taking the time to learn more about my background. 

Judicial Assignment

I currently preside over civil and criminal jury trials at our Civic Center Courthouse.

The San Francisco Court has 52 judicial  positions. While other counties differ, our longstanding philosophy has been that judges can better serve the community when they are cross-trained in various areas of the law. Accordingly, most San Francisco judges will rotate assignments throughout their career.
