Commissioner Murray Gross Steps Down From Bench


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Yesterday was Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Murray Gross’ last day on the bench before he officially retires March 31, court officials said.

Gross, 62, attended UCLA and Loyola Law School before being admitted to the State Bar in 1974.

He served as a deputy district attorney for five years before entering private practice and then becoming a commissioner in 1988, according to a biography for a CLE event sponsored by the Los Angeles County Bar Association.

He had been sitting in Dept. 1A downtown, handling miscellaneous civil matters. That department will be occupied beginning today by Commissioner Matthew St. George, whose Alhambra courtroom will be taken over by Commissioner Bruce Mitchell, officials said.
