Hon. Erica R. Yew

Add another intriguing candidate for one of two openings on an influential San Jose-based state appeals court: Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Erica Yew.
Gov. Jerry Brown has forwarded Yew's name for the 6th District Court of Appeal to a statewide commission that screens California's judicial candidates, often a prelude to an appointment to the bench. The commission recently circulated a questionnaire on Yew in the local legal community, seeking responses by this coming week, according to a copy reviewed by IA. Barring a bad review from the commission, Yew may well be in line for the governor's appointment, which would make her the first Asian-American woman to serve on the 6th District bench. Yew was the first Asian-American woman judge in Santa Clara County when former Gov. Gray Davis appointed her to the trial bench in 2002. Yew, 51, was a specialist in civil law as an attorney, and she has handled civil cases and domestic violence matters as a judge. She shared a compelling story with the Mercury News six years ago about her own experiences with domestic violence in a past relationship. In addition to Yew, other leading contenders for the 6th District include fellow Santa Clara County judges Brian Walsh and Patricia Lucas, Santa Clara County Counsel Miguel Marquez and Monterey County Superior Court Judge Adrienne Grover.
