A Dec. 18 story about married judge couples in California had barely gone up at CalLaw.com when a few e-mails and phone calls came in saying, “You left out so and so.” It was to be expected. The Recorder’s search for judges who are married to other judges was far from scientific. Names were gathered by word of mouth or from the California Judges Association, then verified through phone calls to various sources.
All told, we found 21couples. But, according to lawyers in Oakland, San Francisco and Irvine, we need to add three more to the original list.
Judge John True III Alameda County Superior Court Judge Claudia Wilken U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California
Judge Maxine Mackler Chesney U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California Retired Judge Edward Stern San Francisco Superior Court
Judge Alicemarie Stotler U.S. District Court for the Central District of California Judge James Stotler Orange County Superior Court
So make that at least 24 judge couples in California. If there are more, please let us know.
