Govenor Arnold Schwarzenegger on Wednesday added another judge to Santa Clara County's bench, naming Los Gatos lawyer Peter Kirwan to Superior Court.. Kirwan, 46, replaces Judge Thomas Hansen, leaving just one vacancy on the 79-member Superior Court. Kirwan has been a partner in two San Jose law firms, most recently working as a civil litigator with Needham, Davis, Kirwan and Young. Kirwan, a Republican, is a graduate of Santa Clara University's law school. Congratulations Judge Kirwan!
