Commissioner Cindy Davis and veteran prosecutor Dan Lamborn were appointed to Superior Court judgeships today by Gov. Jerry Brown.
Davis, 50, has been a Superior Court commissioner for seven years. Before that, the Imperial Beach resident was a deputy city attorney for the city of San Diego and a lawyer with Luce Forward Hamilton & Scripps.
The Democrat will fill a vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Steven Denton.
Lamborn, 57, has been employed by the San Diego County District Attorney's Office since 1983, and has been the chief deputy district attorney for the past five years.
The Ramona resident is known for successfully prosecuting Cleophus Prince, who fatally stabbed six women in the 1990s. He was named the San Diego County Prosecutor of the Year in 1994 by the Deputy District Attorneys Association.
The Republican will fill a vacancy created by the resignation of Judge Lisa Foster.
The two will both earn an annual salary of $181,292.
