Vacant Seat On The Calaveras County Superior Court Bench Has Been Filled

The vacant seat on the Calaveras County Superior Court bench has been filled. Late last month, David Sanders, who has served as Court Commissioner for three years, was appointed by Gov. Jerry Brown to fill the position formerly held by Grant Barrett, who resigned last August after three years on the bench. Sanders, a Democrat, had been commissioner at the Calaveras County Superior Court since 2015. Sanders followed Barrett into the Commissioners role, when Barrett was elected Judge. Sanders earned his law degree from the University of California in Davis, and has been a member of the California State Bar since 1987. According to the Governor’s office, Sanders served as a “Judge Pro Tem” in the Sacramento County small claims court and in El Dorado County’s Dispute Resolution Conference Program in 1994. He’s also served on the arbitration panels of Amador, Calaveras, San Joaquin, Placer and Nevada counties in addition to being a private mediator. Sanders and his wife currently live in Pioneer.
