As the president-elect of the California Judges Association, Judge David Rosenberg of Yolo Superior Court has been appointed as an advisory member of the California Judicial Council for a one-year term.

Appointed by Chief Justice of California Tani Cantil-Sakauye, this is Rosenberg’s second appointment as he was previously appointed to the Judicial Council, serving from 2013-15. Cantil-Sakauye also re-appointed Judge Rosenberg as Chairman of the Advisory Committee on Audits and Financial Accountability of the Judicial Branch, according to a press release from Yolo Superior Court.

“I’ve always tried to live a multi-dimensional life,” said Judge Rosenberg. “As I enter my 19th year as a  Superior Court Judge, I’m pleased to be able to continue my service to the people of Yolo County. But I’m also gratified to be able to serve in the governance of the Judicial Branch as a member of the Judicial  Council, and also to serve the Judges and Judicial Officers of California as the incoming president of the  California Judges Association.”

The California Judicial Council is the policy-making body of the California courts, carrying out this mission through the work of its internal committees, advisory committees and task forces. The court is in the rare position of having two members on the council, Court Executive Officer Shawn C. Landry was appointed in 2020.

Appointed to Yolo Superior Court in October of 2003, Judge Rosenberg has been elected to office three times. He currently presides over a criminal trial department. Judge Rosenberg was elected presiding judge three times by his peers and was instrumental in the development of the current courthouse, completed in 2015, the press release said.

Judge Rosenberg has served, and continues to serve, on multiple boards and commissions and is President of the Davis Odd Fellows #169. He is also an author, having most recently written an autobiography and, previously, a science fiction novel.

Before his election as judge, Roseberg served as a Yolo County supervisor, mayor and member of the Davis City Council, civil litigator in private practice and as senior advisor to two governors of California. He also previously served as chairman of the California Law Revision Commission, Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board, California State Lottery Commission and Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management Commission.
