Maricopa County Superior Court gets two new judges

Maricopa County Superior Court has two new judges.

Gov. Jan Brewer announced the appointments Friday of James Blomo and Gerry Porter to the court’s bench. They fill the vacancies created by the recent retirements of judges Robert Budoff and Edward Burke.

Blomo has served since 2003 as a court’s commissioner, where he presided over criminal matters. He previously was a judge pro-tem for Tempe, a deputy county attorney for Maricopa County and spent several years in private practice specializing in criminal defense, civil matters and domestic relations.

Porter also has been a county court commissioner since 2003 and presided over probate and family matters. He previously was a Scottsdale Justice of the Peace and a senior policy advisor to both former Arizona Gov. Fife Symington and the Arizona Corporation Commission.
