Judge Vargas to join district attorney's office

San Diego Superior Court Judge Luis R. Vargas has accepted a position at the San Diego County district attorney’s office.

He will begin his duties in January, subsequent to his retirement from the bench. Judge Vargas, who has been on the bench for 20 years, will be lending his expertise in several areas of the law, including civil litigation, appellate cases and cross-border issues.

"I've known Judge Vargas for many years and, as a former colleague of his on the bench, I’m very excited about having him join the DA’s Office," District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis said. "Judge Vargas has a sterling reputation in San Diego County as a respected attorney and jurist. We’re fortunate to have him come on board, and we will benefit greatly from his experience, particularly in the area of civil litigation and the work done by our appellate division."

Vargas has been a judge with the San Diego Superior Court since 1998 and, before that, served as a municipal court judge for more than five years, where he also served as presiding judge. Prior to taking the bench, he was a California deputy attorney general for 12 years in both the criminal and civil divisions.

“I’m honored to have completed 20 years of public service to the court and am pleased to be able to continue a public service role in the office of the District Attorney,” Vargas said.
