Former Hamburg resident serves second term on the CJP

HAMBURG — California Gov. Jerry Brown recently appointed former State Bar President Anthony Capozzi to serve a second term on the Commission on Judicial Performance.

Capozzi is a former Hamburg resident.

Capozzi is the owner and operator of the Law Offices of Anthony P. Capozzi. He was a member of the Judicial Council of California from 2005 – 2010 and served as the state bar of California’s 79th president from 2003 – 2004.

According to the Los Angeles Metropolitan News, “The commission is the independent state agency responsible for investigating complaints of judicial misconduct and judicial incapacity, and for disciplining judges.”

Capozzi graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo and the University of Toledo College of Law. He was a law clerk for the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois from 1970 – 1973 and served the U.S. Department of Justice as an assistant U.S. attorney from 1973 – 1979.

His current practice focuses mainly on criminal law, with some civil work.

He has served as president of the Fresno County Bar Association and the Federal Bar Association, San Joaquin Valley chapter; lawyer cochair of the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference; cochair of the Bench Bar Coalition and member of the state access and fairness commission.

He is a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.

Capozzi was admitted to the State Bar of California in 1976 and is also admitted in Ohio and Illinois.

The attorney members of the CJP are appointed by the governor and the judicial members by the state supreme court. Capozzi is currently the vice-chairperson of that commission, having been elected to the post by his fellow members in October.
