Balloting Underway for Two Superior Court Commissioners


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Los Angeles Superior Court judges are electing two new commissioners.

Ballots were recently mailed out for the two positions, and are due back by next Monday, a judge told the MetNews Friday.

The new commissioners will be elected from a list of candidates nominated by a judicial panel. If the court follows its tradition of electing commissioners in the order that the panel has ranked them, the winners will be Deputy District Attorney Latonya Hadnot Prioleau and Woodland Hills sole practitioner Michelle Short-Nagel.

The other candidates are Deputy Public Defender Lisa Strassner; Deputy Federal Public Defender Alicia Blanco; Montebello attorney Armando Duron; Administrative Law Judge Amy C. Yerkey; court staff attorney Nichelle Blackwell; dependency court attorney Timothy Martella; Calabasas sole practitioner and former Superior Court Referee Marilyn Mordetzky; Deputy Alternate Public Defender Michael Miller; Orange County Deputy Public Defender Sheryl Beasley; Amparo Veronica Sauceda of the Los Angeles  Center for Law and Justice; and Irvine attorney Doreen Boxer.
