On Oct. 18, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed Daniel P. Maguire, 43, to a judgeship position in the Yolo County Superior Court. Maguire will be filling the position of retiring Judge Thomas E. Warriner.
Previous to his appointment as judge, Maguire worked for Gov. Schwarzenegger as a deputy legal affairs secretary from 2005 to 2010. Before that, he was a sole practitioner from 2001 to 2005. He was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1997.
Maguire has his J.D. from Harvard University Law School and his bachelor’s from Stanford University.
“Governor Schwarzenegger has made a superb choice for the Yolo Superior Court,” said Judge Dave Rosenberg in a press release. “Dan Maguire has the talent, skill and background to be an exceptional judge. We welcome this appointment.”
Rosenberg’s response was similar to that of Shawn Landry, assistant court executive officer at the Yolo County Superior Court.
“We’re grateful to the governor for making this appointment,” he said. “It seems like with Maguire’s educational background, his experience at the governor’s office and in his practice he’ll be a welcome addition to the Yolo County court bench.”
Maguire will be sworn in by mid-December.
