Brazile to Replace Buckley on Judicial Council
By a MetNews Staff Writer
Los Angeles Superior Court Assistant Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile will join the Judicial Council as a member, effective Sept. 15, under an appointment by Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye, it was announced yesterday.
He replaces Los Angeles Superior Court Presiding Judge Daniel Buckley, whose term on the Council ends Sept. 14. Brazile will replace him as presiding judge on Jan. 1, 2019.
Under the state Constitution, the chief justice chairs the Judicial Council and appoints one other Supreme Court justice, three Court of Appeal justices, 10 trial court judges, two nonvoting court administrators, “and any other nonvoting members as determined by the voting membership of the council.”
The State Bar Board of Trustees appoints four members, and the state Senate and Assembly each appoints one member.
