Three File Preliminary Papers in Judicial Races


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Filing declarations of candidacy for Los Angeles Superior Court open seats yesterday were former Deputy District Attorney Christopher Darden, a prosecutor in the O.J. Simpson murder case, Deputy District Attorney Renee Rose, and Hermosa Beach attorney Mohammad Ali Fakhreddine.

Darden declared an intent to seek election to Office No. 130, now occupied by Judge Cary Nishimoto; Rose filed a declaration for Office No. 48, now belonging to Judge Margaret Miller Bernal, and Fakhreddine filed a declaration for Office No. 135, held by Judge Brian C. Yep.

Private practitioner Malik C. Burroughs has also filed a declaration for Office No. 48. He has provided information to the State Bar that he is with the law firm of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP, but that firm does not list him as one of its attorneys on its website, and Burroughs has not responded to an emailed query.

Deputy District Attorney Victor Avila on Tuesday filed a declaration of an intention to seek Office No. 93, held by Judge Malcolm Mackey.
