Daniel Kremer, presiding justice of the Fourth District Court of Appeal in San Diego, has retired, the Judicial Council announced Monday. Richard Huffman will be acting presiding justice of Division One in San Diego until Gov. Gray Davis makes a permanent appointment. Huffman will also serve as acting administrative presiding justice for the entire Fourth District, a position Kremer has held for more than 15 years. Kremer stepped down July 31. Chief Justice Ronald George will name a new administrative PJ after Davis names a new presiding justice for Division One. The administrative PJ handles the budget, among other duties. Although Davis’ office would not discuss who might replace Kremer permanently, Huffman said Monday that only one associate justice from the court, Judith McConnell, has put her name in circulation to be the new PJ. Davis could also appoint someone outside the Fourth District to be PJ. Davis appointed McConnell to the appeal district in 2001. While at the appellate district, Kremer served on the Judicial Council. Last year, he received the group’s jurist of the year award. Kremer was appointed to the Fourth District by Republican Gov. George Deukmejian in 1985. He had served as a San Diego County Superior Court judge for only two years before that. Deukmejian had also made him a judge. Before that, Kremer worked for the state attorney general’s office for nearly 20 years. When he left there in 1983, he was chief assistant of the criminal division. Kremer graduated from Stanford Law School in 1963. He could not be reached for comment Monday.
