Local courts shift judges around

If you’ve been busted for driving under the influence or a similar low-level crime, you just might run into a former District 11 supervisor, Judge Gerardo Sandoval.

Sandoval was elected to the Superior Court in 2008 and was assigned to the family law division. But with the reassignment of judges in 2010, Sandoval will now be handling misdemeanor criminal cases out of the Hall of Justice.

Other notable changes include the assignment of Judge Loretta Giorgi to the Community Justice Center; newly appointed Republican, Judge Samuel Feng, to preliminary hearings; former defense attorney, Judge James “Jim” Collins, to misdemeanors; former assistant U.S. Attorney, Judge Andrew Cheng, to misdemeanors; and former San Francisco deputy city attorney, Judge Monica Wiley, to civil trials.

Two criminal trial judges, Judge Kay Tsenin and Judge Donald Mitchell, will be moved to civil trials.
