The San Francisco County Superior Court is branch of the California Superior Court with jurisdiction over the City and County of San Francisco. Katherine Feinstein (daughter of Senator Dianne Feinstein) had been the presiding judge of the court for twelve years, through 2012.[1][2] Judge Cynthia Ming-Mei Lee was elected the new presiding judge on June 27, 2012. The court has 52 judges and one commissioner.[3]

In 1976 the Court helped to create the San Francisco Pretrial Diversion Project,[4] a nonprofit organization that helps to provide alternative punishments for misdemeanors and parking violations, in an attempt to divert petty offenders from overcrowded courtrooms.[5]
