About Armando Duron
Commissioner Armando Durón was elected by the judges of the Superior Court of Los Angeles County in 2015. His first assignment was to hear solely Domestic Violence Restraining Order requests at the Stanley Mosk courthouse. He was the first judicial officer in the county to have that assignment. Commissioner Durón’s next assignment was to hear child support cases at the Central Civil West courthouse. After a few months, the Supervising Judge of the Family Law Department appointed him site supervisor for that section. At Commissioner Durón’s request, his new assignment is a regular family law assignment at the Compton courthouse, where most litigants are African-Americans or Latinos.
