San Diego, CA (For Release) - Deputy Attorney General Mike Murphy, a San Diego County native with more than two decades of prosecutorial experience, is running to fill Superior Court Seat #30. During his tenure Murphy has worked at all levels of the state court system, from trial courts to the Court of Appeals and the California Supreme Court. He has built a reputation of fairness and integrity based on a record of making the right decisions and applying the law fairly and equally. Murphy’s bid has been supported by retiring Superior Court Judge Louis Hanoian, who calls Murphy “uncompromisingly fair, honest and professional.”
“I have served as a prosecutor for 24 years now in our state courts,” explains Murphy, who has handled a number of extremely complex criminal trials across Southern California. “That experience has given me the unique opportunity to develop my understanding of the law and my knowledge of our legal system from top to bottom.”
Above and beyond his experience as a prosecutor, Murphy prides himself on adhering to the high standards of integrity and impartiality he believes all judges should hold. “Judges make decisions every day that have an impact on the people that appear before them, and those decisions can be very significant for those individual lives,” he points out. “The people who appear before the courts need to have confidence that their judges are making decisions not based on political bias, not based on a political agenda, but on the Constitution and the laws that our representatives have passed.”
In addition to Judge Hanoian, Murphy is endorsed by eight other Superior Court Judges. Other county leaders endorsing Murphy include San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore, retired San Diego City Chief of Police David Bejarano, retired San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, and San Diego County Supervisor Greg Cox. The San Diego Deputy District Attorneys Association has also given its support to Murphy in his bid for Superior Court Judge.
“Superior Court judges have the ability to impact in positive ways the community that they live in,” says Murphy, whose education includes St. Augustine High School, San Diego State University, and the USD School of Law. “It would be an honor to serve in that capacity now as a Superior Court judge.”
