For the first time
in several years, retired Superior Court Judge James Warren was spotted getting a morning coffee to go at Cafe Abir in the heart of District 5. Warren got some notoriety as the judge in the dog mauling case, the 101 California shooting, and the litigation on the garage under the Concourse in Golden Gate Park, which is where I saw him
in action on the bench in 2005. Back in 2004, he made an important---and excellent---decision on that case; I still have a dog-eared copy in my files. He also gave us the original injunction in 2006 against the city in the Bicycle Plan case, but, alas, retired shortly thereafter, and the case was reassigned to Judge Busch. Warren is now working for
"JAMS"---Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services.
