Judge Clare Maier presides over an equally diverse, and particularly eclectic, set of calendars, including the Prop 36, FADS (Felony Alternative Drug Sentencing), and misdemeanor domestic violence calendars, plus many more. In her spare time, Judge Maier also teaches yoga, plants flower beds and bakes up a storm - and that's just for her Court family. Judge Maier juggles all of these disciplines with her trademark enthusiasm, hard work and compassion.

Unfortunately, our Proposition 36 Drug Court lost all of its funding as of June 30, 2011, and we no longer have funding for representatives from our County Alcohol and Other Drug Services ("AODS") team members. Thus, when drug offenders are referred for treatment, they are likely to encounter long waiting lists for both residential and out-patient treatment facilities. Judge Maier, however, worked with treatment providers and representatives of AODS to maintain treatment services, including drug testing - a critical component to ensure compliance - and is working on a plan to arrange transportation from detention facilities to residential treatment programs. Additionally, one of our County programs will be creating a "retention group" for defendants on waiting lists for residential treatment programs. We also have funding for an intensive (out-patient) program for women with children, an invaluable program as the waiting list for women's treatment beds is particularly long. So, despite the lack of funding, our Court is able to continue to offer treatment for addiction, largely because of the tremendous efforts of Judge Maier and all of the participating agencies.

Judge Clare Maier presides over our felony pretrial hearings, plus an infinite number of other pre- and post-trial matters. She keeps up a dizzying pace every day-whether taking 100 pleas or hearing 100 motions-and she does it all with enthusiasm and diligence. Her impressive settlement skills contribute to a large measure of our ability to keep on top of the caseload. Judge Maier works well with the Deputy District Attorneys, Deputy Public Defenders and attorneys from the Alternate Defender's Office, conflicts panel and the private bar to resolve cases fairly.
