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.

Do you think electronic cigarettes should be prohibited in the same places cigarettes are?

Yes, we don't know the dangers
No, they are harmless to others
Maybe, but they're still safe
We should do what we can to encourage use since they're less harmfull than cigarettes
Who cares, they're lame
