DAVIS REAPPOINTS KAHN TO THE CJP SACRAMENTO — Gov. Gray Davis has reappointed Michael Kahn to the Commission on Judicial Performance, where he has held a position since 1999. Kahn, 54, is a senior partner at Folger Levin & Kahn in San Francisco and has been close to Davis for years. Previous jobs in the administration include chair of the state Electricity Oversight Board and a spot with the Independent System Operator. While on Electricity Oversight, Kahn worked closely with Barry Goode, Davis’ top legal adviser, on negotiations with utility companies during the state power crisis. Goode and Kahn also worked together on U.S. v. Stringfellow, 83-2501, a landmark toxic cleanup case. Kahn also was a member of U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer’s Judicial Advisory Committee for the Northern District. He has served as chair and vice-chair of CJP. He does not receive a salary on the commission. Kahn received his law degree from Stanford Law School. — Jeff Chorney LITTLER OPENS A NEW OUTPOST IN MIAMI Littler Mendelson has opened an office in Miami. The firm announced Thursday that it had hired seven attorneys, including three partners, from rival firms and launched its first office in the Sunshine State. “We have been interested in expanding into Florida for quite some time, but until recently we had not identified the right group of attorneys to help us launch a successful practice,” said Managing Director Wendy Tice-Wallner in a news release. In addition to serving existing clients that have Florida operations, Tice-Wallner said the firm intends to capitalize on employment litigation resulting from Florida’s population and job growth. Heading up Littler’s Miami outpost is Lori Brown, a former partner at Jackson Lewis. The other partners joining the Miami office come from Islamorada, Fla.-based Vernis & Bowling and Miami’s Akerman, Senterfitt & Eidson. The group is currently practicing in temporary office space while the firm finalizes negotiations on a permanent location. — Alexei Oreskovic
