"2002 Judicial Calendar Assignments"

Incoming Presiding Judge George Abdallah has announced the new calendar assignments for the coming year for the San Joaquin County Superior Court.

"We want to make the very best use of everyone's talents, abilities, and education, which the new assignments reflect," according to Judge Abdallah. "These adjustments were also based on each judge's expressed interests in certain areas of the law."

The changes take effect January 14, 2002. The Honorable George Abdallah assumes his duties as Presiding Judge on that date as well. The Presiding Judge is elected by the bench every two years. The Honorable Bob W. McNatt will serve as Assistant Presiding Judge for 2002-2003.

Judge Abdallah said administrators are currently investigating direct calendaring for the criminal courts. Therefore, there may be additional changes in assignments in the future.
