By a MetNews Staff Writer


Gov. Gray Davis yesterday named Commissioner Beverly Daniels-Greenberg to the Alameda Superior Court bench and Alameda Deputy District Attorney Nancy Davis to serve as a Contra Costa Superior Court judge.

The governor, who faces an Oct. 7 recall vote, has now appointed 18 judges in the past month after making no appointments for over three months. According to his press office, 40 Superior Court vacancies remain statewide.

Daniels-Greenberg, 58, presides over a criminal calendar in Oakland. She was appointed a commissioner in 1997 and was previously worked an Alameda deputy public defender.

She is a member of the California Association of Black Lawyers and the Charles Houston Bar Association and has served on the board of the East Bay Center for the Performing Arts. Before attending Lincoln College of Law, Daniels-Greenberg worked as a bank teller, flight attendant, university administrator and college instructor.

She fills the vacancy created by the death of Judge Kenneth E. Norman.

Davis, 45, was born and raised in the East Bay and has worked as a prosecutor in the Alameda District Attorney’s Office since 1982. She currently heads the office’s Sexually Violent Predators Unit.

She is the founder of the Alamo Ensemble Players, a children’s musical ensemble that performs at community functions in Contra Costa County.

Davis earned her law degree at Hastings Law School. She will replace Judge Douglas Cunningham, who retired.

Each judge will receive a salary of $139,476.
