December 28, 2016 (San Diego) -- Gov. Jerry Brown has announced that U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy will become a Superior Court judge in San Diego.

Duffy, a Democrat who was appointed by President Obama in 2010, was likely to be replaced by a Republican when President-elect Donald Trump takes office.

Prior to serving as U.S. Attorney, Duffy, 54, was a career federal prosecutor with the Department of Justice, specializing in narcotics cases.

She fills the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge William R. Nevitt.

Brown also appointed Deputy District Attorney Rachel Cano, trial attorney Cynthia Freeland and Deputy Public Defender Maryann D’Addezio Kotler as Superior Court judges in San Diego.
