Torrance : Presiding Judge Selected

December 11, 1986

Francis J. Hourigan has been appointed presiding judge of the South Bay Municipal Court effective Jan. 1.

Hourigan, 45, succeeds Judge Sandra Thompson. He served as a commissioner of the court from July, 1984, to October, 1985, when Gov. George Deukmejian appointed him to a judgeship.

A resident of Rancho Palos Verdes, Hourigan earned his law degree from Loyola Law School in 1968 and served as a prosecutor in the county district attorney's office before becoming a commissioner.

Presiding judges, who supervise the court's operations, are elected by their fellow judges for one-year terms. The South Bay Municipal Court serves 10 communities.
