Former prosecutor, commissioner named judge
January 30, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A former San Mateo County prosecutor and court commissioner was appointed to a Superior Court judgeship Tuesday by Gov. Jerry Brown.

Elizabeth M. Hill, a 38-year-old Democrat from Redwood City, follows retired Judge James Ellis.

Hill graduated from Case Western Reserve University and Stanford Law School. She served as a deputy district attorney from 2000 to 2010 before briefly moving into private practice. In 2010, she was named a court commissioner, a position that presides over low-level criminal cases and civil suits. She left that post in 2013 and has been serving as a part-time commissioner with the Santa Clara County Superior Court.

She will earn $181,292 annually.
