Metropolitan News-Enterprise Endorses David Berger for Judge

Today I was delighted to learn that I had received the endorsement of the Los Angeles Metropolitan News-Enterprise - one of the leading legal daily newspapers, widely read in the legal community. I had hoped for their endorsement as they had endorsed me in 2016, but I did not take it as a given.


What I did not expect were these incredibly humbling words "The credentials of Deputy District Attorney David Berger overshadow [his opponent]. Berger’s qualities are such that he has the potential of becoming one of the court’s stellar members. He is even-tempered, highly articulate, and dignified. He grasps arguments quickly and knows the law, enabling him to decide matters without pondering."

Thank you Mr. Grace for your faith and trust. If I am fortunate enough to be elected Judge of the Superior Court, Office No. 71, I will do my best to live up to your expectations.

LA Times Endorses David Berger for Judge

I am very proud and honored to be endorsed by the Los Angeles Times in my race for Judge of the Superior Court, Office No. 71. Supporters will recall that in 2016 I was also endorsed by the LA Times, and I am certain that the Times endorsement contributed greatly to my garnering 1.3M votes and brought me just 3% short of victory. 2018 is a different election with a different opponent, but the Times' faith in my candidacy remains a constant, and I believe will tip the balance in my favor in the June 5, 2018 election.


"This is the second time Deputy Dist. Atty. Berger has run for judge, and the second time he wins The Times' endorsement for his impressive record as a trial lawyer. Outside the courtroom, he has a reputation for sharp-witted candor and a sometimes supercilious attitude, which he displayed as a candidate for Los Angeles city attorney and later on a website that critiqued various candidates and commented on news events. None of that gives us pause. In the courtroom, he has demonstrated himself to be a professional if somewhat tough criminal prosecutor …  we recommend Berger."

My thanks to the LA Times Editorial Board for their thorough research and balanced reasoning in once again saying "Berger is the Best Choice."
