Today's MetNews has Dan Potter Named Clerk of Sixth District Court of Appeal, noting "longtime assistant clerk/administrator of the Second District Court of Appeal, is leaving that post next week to become clerk/administrator of the Sixth District Court of Appeal" starting March 16. His last day at the 2d District will be next week, so be sure to drop by and wish him well.
Potter has been Lane’s top assistant for 22 years, and leaving the court for the top job in San Jose “is certainly bittersweet,” he said. “Not only am I leaving friends and colleagues, but the justices of this court, who are very dear to me.”
The Sixth District is the smallest of California’s appellate courts, with seven justices—the Second District has 32—and about 45 employees, compared with 250 at his present court.
