Gov. Gavin Newsom has nominated two appellate court justices, recommended the elevation of a third to presiding justice and named 16 trial court judges, a majority of whom are former prosecutors.

Newsom on Friday nominated Therese Stewart as presiding justice of the First District Court of Appeal’s Division Two.

If her nomination is approved by the Commission on Judicial Performance, Stewart will replace Justice J. Anthony Kline, who retired.
