Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Call it a minor milestone.

For the first time in its history, the state Commission on Judicial Performance, which handles complaints about judges, has elected a non-lawyer as its chairman.

He is Lawrence Simi, a prominent non-profit organization leader and one-time corporate executive from San Francisco. Simi has been a member of the commission since being appointed by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2005 as a public member.

The commission, based in San Francisco, also elected Santa Clara County Judge Erica Yew as vice-chair.
