Judge Glennon to Retire From Superior Court

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge


Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Bert Glennon Jr. said yesterday he plans to retire July 1 and has no idea what he’ll be doing.

“I’ve been doing this for over 33 years,” he said of his service on the bench, which began on the Culver Municipal Court, remarking that “it’s about time” to do something else.

“I don’t have any specific plans,” he related.

Glennon, whose knack at settling cases caused him to be assigned to handle settlements, exclusively, said that if a private dispute resolution firm approached him and made an offer, “I can look at that seriously.”

The judge was city attorney of Culver City when Gov. George Deukmejian on Feb. 25, 1986, named him to the Municipal Court for the Culver Judicial District. He was elevated to the Superior Court by Deukmejian three years later.

 Glennon, 80, received his law degree from the University of La Verne in 1970 and was admitted that year to the State Bar of California. He worked as a Los Angeles deputy city attorney until his appointment to office in Culver City in 1982.
