Governor announces judicial appointments, including 2 in San Diego County

Governor Gavin Newsom announced nearly two dozen new court dates Friday, including the names of two lawyers from the San Diego District.

Marissa A. Bejarano, district attorney for the San Diego County District Attorney, and Daniel Segura, a defense attorney for the San Diego County District Attorney, have been appointed Justice of the San Diego Supreme Court, according to the governor.

Bejarano, 42, of Chula Vista, has served with the district attorney since 2014 and served as the South County parish attorney since 2019. According to the prosecutor’s office, the parish partnership prosecutors represent the agency at community events and when working with law enforcement agencies, community leaders, residents and others on quality of life issues that affect neighborhoods, among others.

Bejarano was previously the Assistant Attorney General at the California Department of Justice from 2006 to 2013.

Bejarano, a Democrat, is filling the post left by Judge Truc T. Do, who recently became the first Asian-American judge on the 4th District Court of Appeals for the San Diego Area.

Segura, 52, of Temecula, has served as an assistant public defender in San Diego since 1995. Segura, also a Democrat, will fill the post created by the resignation of Judge Jeffrey B. Barton.

As of July 1, the annual salary for Superior Court judges is $ 223,829.
