Biografía

Justice Judith Haller was nominated to the Fourth District California Court of Appeal in 1994, found to be "exceptionally well qualified" for the position, and unanimously confirmed by the Commission on Judicial Appointments on August 9, 1994.  The voters confirmed Justice Haller in two former retention elections.  She previously served as a San Diego Superior Court Judge for five years.

Justice Haller was born and raised in Los Angeles and graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from UCLA.  After graduation, she moved to San Diego, where she earned a Master of Arts degree, with honors, from San Diego State University.  She also worked for the university as an administrator in the Dean of Student Activities Office.  Following a lifelong dream, she attended law school and, in 1975, graduated with honors from California Western School of Law.

After admission to the Bar, Justice Haller worked as a deputy district attorney for the San Diego District Attorney's Office for three years prosecuting criminal cases and litigating dependency matters.  Over the next 10 years she worked at Higgs Fletcher and Mack, where she represented clients involved in civil litigation disputes.  She was a partner at the firm when she was appointed to the superior court.

During her tenure at the appellate court, Justice Haller has been actively involved in a leadership role in organizations and committees devoted to improving the judicial system; maintaining the highest standards of ethical conduct; and educating members of the legal community.  Among her work in this area, she was appointed by the Chief Justice to the Executive Committee of the Commission on the Future of California's Court System, where she served as chair of the Civil Working subgroup, and in 2017 made several recommendations to increase and improve assistance for self-represented litigants and streamline and reduce the cost of litigation in all civil cases.

Justice Haller is currently a member of the Supreme Court Committee on Judicial Ethics Opinions; a former chair of the California Judges Association Ethics Committee; and has served as a Special Master to preside over disciplinary hearings brought by the Commission on Judicial Performance.  She is also a Master and member of the Executive Committee of the American Inns of Court, Enright Chapter; a Master of the San Diego Appellate Inn of Court; and a longtime member of Lawyers Club of San Diego and the Board of Trustees of California Western School of Law.  For the past 10 years, she has served as the chair of the Appellate Court Legacy Project and has been a frequent lecturer at continuing education programs.

Justice Haller has been honored to be recognized by the legal community as a recipient of the Bernard E. Witkin, Esq. Award (presented annually for civic leadership and excellence in the teaching, practice, enactment or adjudication of the law); the Joan Dempsey Klein Distinguished Jurist Award (presented by California Women Lawyers for excellence as a jurist and commitment to gender equity); and a 2012 Professionalism Award (presented by the American Inns of Court Foundation).

Justice Haller and her husband have two children and three grandchildren.

Creencias poliza

As an appellate court justice, I apply and interpret the law as set forth in the United States Constitiution, the Constitution of the State of California and in state statutes as relevant to the facts of the dispute before me to reach a fair and just conclusion.  I believe it is critical to provide an independent forum where disputes can be resolved without bias or prejudice. I also believe it is important to mentor young attorneys and participate actively in the legal community.
