By a MetNews Staff Writer


Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger yesterday named Redwood City litigator Gerald J. Buchwald to the San Mateo Superior Court.

Buchwald, 57, has been practicing civil law for more than 30 years, the last six as a partner in Ropers, Majeski, Kohn, and Bentley. He was previously a partner in the San Francisco firm of Severson and Werson, where he worked from 1976 to 1998.

He was a law clerk to Donald R. Wright, then chief justice of California, from 1973 to 1974. Buchwald’s experience also includes four years on the editorial board of the American Bar Association’s Lawyers Manual of Professional Conduct from 1993 to 1997.

Buchwald earned his undergraduate and law degrees from Northwestern University and fills the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Judith Whitmer. Buchwald is a Republican.
