Calaveras Superior Court gets new judge

Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday announced the appointment of Hugh Swift, of Angels Camp, to the Calaveras County Superior Court bench.

Swift, 54, of Angels Camp, fills the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Douglas V. Mewhinney.

Swift has been a court executive officer at the Calaveras County Superior Court since 2011. He served in several positions — including court commissioner and executive officer — at the Amador County Superior Court from 1999 to 2011.

Prior to that, he was an associate attorney at the Law Offices of Charles S. Limandri in San Diego and a partner in the firm Swift and Connolly, also in San Diego.

He was also an associate attorney at Koeller Nebeker Carlson and Halluck from 1988 to 1991, at Mullen Dofflemyre and Frazier from 1986 to 1988 and at Tucker Goldby and Freedman from 1985 to 1986.

Swift has a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of San Diego. He earned a law degree from the California Western School of Law.

Swift is a Democrat.
