Three Lawyers Named to Law Revision Commission
By a MetNews Staff Writer
Three attorneys, two of them from Los Angeles, were re-appointed to the California Law Revision Commission yesterday by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The two local appointees are Sidney Greathouse and Pamela Hemminger. The third designee is Susan Lee.
The appointments require Senate confirmation, although the designated members may begin service immediately. Commission members do not receive a salary, but are paid $100 per day for attending meetings.
Greathouse has served since 2000 as director of legal services for The Cheesecake Factory Incorporated, having previously practiced employment law at Jackson, Lewis, Schnitzler & Krupman from 1999 to 2000 and at Gartner & Young from 1997 to 1999.
Hemminger has been a partner in Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP since 1985 and specializes in labor and employment law. She is a past chair of the Labor and Employment Law section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, and a fellow in the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers.
She is included in current and past editions of “The Best Lawyers In America,” “Chambers USA America’s Leading Business Lawyers,” and Euromoney’s “Guide to the World’s Leading Labour and Employment Lawyers.
Lee has served as a deputy attorney general since 1989 and currently serves as the supervisor in the opinions unit. She previously was lead attorney in the San Francisco office, supervising the establishment of a statewide correctional habeas team.
Her experience also includes service in the correctional law division.
