Peter Carroll to be New Chief Judge in the Central District of CaliforniaPeter Carroll sitting in Riverside will move to Los Angeles in September of this year and will become the new Chief Judge on January 1, 2011 replacing Judge Vincent Zurzolo as Chief Judge. Judge Sam Bufford is retiring in September and will take a position at Penn State University. Geraldine Mund and Kathleen Thompson are retiring in January, 2011 - they are sure going to be missed. Judges Alan Ahart and Victoria Kaufman will move from downtown to the San Fernando Valley to fill the vacancies. As I understand it, Judge Mund will remain on some sort of temporary status and finish up the cases assigned to her.
