Carson, CA --- Assemblymember Mike A. Gipson, Chairman of the Assembly Democratic Caucus and member of the Legislative Black Caucus, released the following statement in support of the appointment of Los Angeles County Assistant Presiding Judge Kevin C. Brazile as the newest member of the Judicial Council, effective September 15, 2017.
“I wholeheartedly support the selection of Judge Brazile to the Judicial Council. He has a long history as a civil public servant. From his appointment to the Los Angeles County bench in 2002 by Governor Gray Davis to his election as Vice President of the California Judges Association in 2009, Judge Brazile has demonstrated time and time again the importance of promoting judicial fairness and excellence. As a judicial council member, I am confident Judge Brazile will demonstrate the integrity that is consistent with the mission of the council to ensure the independent, impartial, and accessible administration of justice. He has shown in his experience as Judge for Los Angeles County in caseloads dealing with employment discrimination, negligence, breach of contract, asbestos actions, and general tort actions. I would like to extend my sincerest congratulations to Judge Kevin C. Brazile on his appointment as a Judicial Council Member. I look forward to working with him to make sure access to justice, both in and out of the courtroom, is available for everyone, not just for a select few.”
