CDAA HIRES NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR SACRAMENTO — David LaBahn, a former Orange County prosecutor, has been named executive director of the California District Attorneys Association. LaBahn, already known in Capitol hallways in his role as deputy executive director of the advocacy group, will oversee the work of 50 staffers. He has served as CDAA’s interim executive director since March 26, when Lawrence Brown left the post to become first assistant under new Eastern District U.S. Attorney McGregor Scott. Of the five candidates the CDAA selection committee interviewed for the job, LaBahn was the only in-house employee. LaBahn has worked at the CDAA, which counts 2,300 state and local prosecutors among its members, since October 1996. Before that, he was a prosecutor in Humboldt County for one year and in Orange County for eight years. LaBahn said Tuesday that the death penalty and the effect of the state budget crisis on district attorneys’ offices and the courts will continue to be big issues for the CDAA in coming months. He also wants to carry on the CDAA’s mission to train and educate prosecutors. The CDAA is now looking for a new deputy executive director. LaBahn said the organization will probably be ready to start recruiting in June. LaBahn, 40, attended Western State University College of Law in Fullerton and joined the Bar in 1987. – Jeff Chorney CARROLL, BURDICK ALUM RETURNS AS PARTNER Alexander Imberg, a former associate at San Francisco’s Carroll, Burdick & McDonough, has rejoined the firm as a partner after a two-year stint working for a German law firm.
