Women’s Resource Fair – VOLUNTEER NOW!

February 18th, 2008 No comments

The Women’s Resource Fair is an annual event, sponsored by local area individuals and organizations. The one-day fair is designed to assist San Diego’s women in need, including homeless and battered women and children, by addressing their need for many basic services, which include medical assistance, services for their children, legal services, information regarding employment opportunities, along with counseling for battered women and assistance with public benefits. This year the Fair will be held at the San Diego Community Concourse on Saturday, March 1, 2008.

The Fair needs volunteers to help provide childcare. Last year, childcare was provided for over 150 children, ranging in age from one to twelve years of age. Volunteers are needed to work at the fair as runners, registrars and sitters. There are full day and half day shifts available from 8:00-4:00p.m., 8:00-12:00p.m., 10:00-2:00p.m., and 12:00-4:00p.m. Lunch and parking is provided for all volunteers. This fair is an amazing opportunity for the women who participate and the volunteers who make it happen.

KABA-SD is assembling a group of officers, board members, and KABA-SD members to volunteer. Please consider volunteering for this worthwhile event. It will be an opportunity to meet other KABA-SD members and contribute to a worthy cause. Please email by February 25, 2008 if you plan to join our group, and for which shift(s).

Lucy Koh Appointed to Superior Court

February 1st, 2008 No comments

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger appointed Luch H. Koh to the Santa Clara County Superior Court bench, making her the first Korean American to be appointed to the bench in the Bay Area.  Judge Koh fills the seat made vacant by the retirement of Judge Randolf Rice.  The 39 year old IP litigator has been a partner at McDermott, Will and Emery since 2002.  Prior to that, she was a senior associate at Wilson, Sonsini, Goddrich and Rosati from 2000 to 2002 and an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Major Frauds Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Central District of California, from 1997 to 2000.  From 1996 to 1997, Judge Koh was a special assistant to the U.S. Deputy Attorney General at the Department of Justice and from 1994 to 1996, served as special counsel at the Department of Justice.  She earned her JD and BA degrees from Harvard.  KABA-SD congratulates Judge Koh on her appointment.  This is a tremendous achievement for Judge Koh and for the Korean American legal community.  Congratulations Judge Koh.
