TWO LAWYERS IN RACE FOR BAR PRESIDENCY In one of the smallest presidential pools in recent years, only two candidates have submitted their names for the State Bar’s top post for the 2003-04 term. Nancy Hoffmeier Zamora, a partner at Los Angeles’ Zamora & Hoffmeier, and Anthony Capozzi, a Fresno solo practitioner, threw their hats into the ring Thursday during a Board of Governors meeting in Long Beach. Zamora, 43, is a bankruptcy lawyer who graduated from UCLA School of Law in 1988. She was president of California Women Lawyers from 1999-2000 and the Women Lawyers’ Association of Los Angeles from 1996-97. Zamora has served in several other bar groups and civic organizations in the L.A. area. Capozzi, 57, is a white-collar criminal defense and civil lawyer, primarily in federal court, who graduated from the University of Toledo College of Law in 1970. He served as the 1999 president of the Fresno County Bar Association and of the San Joaquin chapter of the Federal Bar Association. Capozzi also served as judge pro tem in Fresno traffic court. The new president will be chosen by members of the Board of Governors at the group’s May 17 meeting in San Francisco. The victor will replace President James Herman, a partner at Santa Barbara’s Reicker, Pfau, Pyle, McRoy & Herman, during the State Bar’s annual meeting in September in Anaheim. — Mike McKee GOV. DAVIS APPOINTS FOUR TO L.A. BENCH Gov. Gray Davis has named four new judges to the Los Angeles County Superior Court. On Friday, the governor announced the appointments of L.A. Deputy Attorney General Robin Miller Sloan; L.A. Deputy District Attorney Lisa Mangay Chung; Donna Fields Goldstein, a partner in L.A.’s Manatt, Phelps & Phillips; and Nancy Newman, a partner in Glendale’s Knapp, Petersen & Clarke. Sloan, 42, of Altadena, graduated from the University of the Pacific’s McGeorge School of Law and began her legal career as a prosecutor in the L.A. city attorney’s office. She works in the health, education and welfare section of the office’s civil division, where she prosecutes teachers for licensing violations and nursing home owners for patient abuse. Chung, 37, of Santa Clarita, graduated from New Orleans’ Tulane Law School and has served as a deputy DA since 1992. Beginning in 1999, she has supervised the domestic violence unit of the DA’s Antelope Valley branch, coordinating the prosecution of all domestic violence cases in her area. Goldstein, 55, of Studio City, graduated from Rutgers School of Law in Camden, N.J., and has been a Manatt partner since 1991. She specializes in complex civil litigation and the defense of employment and class action claims. Newman, 47, of Playa del Rey, graduated from L.A.’s Southwestern University School of Law and has been at Knapp, Petersen & Clarke since 1985. Her practice emphasizes insurance defense, product liability and general casualty. All four will receive a salary of $139,476 a year. — Mike McKee NEW CO-CHAIR TAPPED FOR MOFO’S IP GROUP Morrison & Foerster has named San Diego partner David Doyle to co-chair the firm’s intellectual property practice. Doyle succeeds Michael Jacobson, who has co-chaired the group since it was launched 13 years ago. Palo Alto partner Gladys Monroy, who became co-chair of the group five years ago, will continue to lead the 300-lawyer practice with Doyle. Doyle joined MoFo three years ago from Baker & McKenzie, where he was managing partner of Baker’s San Diego office and chairman of its IP practice. A former federal prosecutor in the San Diego U.S. attorney’s office, Doyle joined San Diego’s MacDonald, Halstead & Laybourne in 1980. Baker & McKenzie later acquired the firm. Doyle specializes in patent litigation and patent licensing disputes for pharmaceutical, biotech, telecommunications and other technology companies. His clients include Beckman Coulter Inc., Invitrogen Corp. and Acon Laboratories Inc. — Brenda Sandburg
