Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Linda K. Lefkowitz, a 20 year veteran on the bench is retiring, according to the MetNews.
Lefkowitz, 72, plans to return for a few days to resolve some outstanding cases prior to formally retiring as of April 5.
She said, “While being a judge has been extraordinary, it’s time to spend time traveling with my husband,” a retired engineer who has been very supportive of her career.
Lefkowitz began her career in her late 30s. A graduate of California State University, Northridge and UCLA School of Law, she was named to the Los Angeles Municipal Court in 1993 by then Governor Pete Wilson. She was later elevated to the Superior Court in 1996. She is a former supervising judge of the West District.
She plans to join ADR Services, where several of her former West District colleagues serve as private judges.
