A commissioner is a subordinate judicial officer who is hired by the judges at a courthouse to sit on the bench as a temporary judge by agreement of the parties. Commissioners are here to assist with the heavy workload of the courts. We are also called “subordinate judicial officers” and perform many -- but not all the same duties as a judge. Because we are not judges, we cannot call ourselves that until we are elected by the people or appointed by the governor. For more information, please see Article VI, section 22 of the California Constitution and California Government Code section 72190.
A bench officer is the general name for a commissioner or judge.

We need you to help spread our message, canvasing neighborhoods, making Zoom calls, phone calls and even stuffing envelopes. Any help you can give, no matter how little, will be a great help to us!
