Encyclopedia > United States District Court for the Central District of California

The U.S. District Court for the Central District of California (commonly referred to as the CDCA or CACD) is the U.S. district court serving some 17 million people in southern and central California, making it the largest federal judicial district by population. The Central District of California was created on September 18, 1966. The U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California represents the United States in civil and criminal cases before the court. Debra Yang has held the role of U.S. Attorney since 2002. Her counterpart, Maria E. Stratton, in 2005 was recently reappointed by the Ninth Circuit as the Federal Public Defender for the Central District.

The Western Division handles cases for Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura Counties. Cases are heard in two huge courthouses in Los Angeles. The older one is the Spring Street courthouse, a typically stodgy early 20th-century government office building, while the newer one is the Edward Roybal courthouse, which is a modern granite-sheathed office tower. Since the mid-1990s, the district court administration has been fighting for funding to renovate or replace the aging Spring Street courthouse. Congress has been reluctant to provide such funding, probably because Congress is currently dominated by the Republican Party and the majority of judges in the CDCA were, as some have speculated, appointed through their connections to the Democratic Party.
