Los Angeles Superior Court Office No. 28
This is a race with two outstanding candidates: Deputy District Attorney Judith L. Meyer and Deputy Attorney General S. Paul Bruguera.
We would like to have seen Meyer win two years ago, when we observed that she has “an unmistakable aptitude for judicial service,” adding:
“She is intelligent, articulate, dedicated, and possessed of ideal judicial temperament. Meyer, who graduated magna cum laude from Pepperdine University School of Law in 1993, has been a prosecutor since 1994, first in Ventura County, then here.”
Our assessment of Meyer is not diminished. In fact, she is even better qualified now, having two more years of experience.
We regard Bruguera highly, and hope he will soon join his wife, Soussan Bruguera, as a member of the county’s trial bench through appointment, or by election in two years.
Our endorsement goes to Meyer, who is two years overdue for a judgeship.
There is a third candidate in the race, realtor/attorney Douglas W. Weitzman, who is ill-equipped for the office he seeks.
