The Honorable Anthony J. Sabo

Ventura County Superior Court, Department 23

Biography

The Hon. Anthony J. Sabo is a judge for the Ventura County Superior Court in California. He was elected to the bench in June of 2018 and was subsequently appointed on October 11, 2018, by former Governor Jerry Brown. The governor's appointment allowed Sabo to immediately assume his position on the bench. He filled the vacancy created by the retirement of the Hon. Brian John Back (Ret.).

Sabo is a registered Democrat.

He received his B.A. from Indiana University in 1986. He went on to earn his J.D. from the University of North Dakota School of Law in 1992.

After graduating from law school, Sabo entered into solo practice in Indiana. During that time, he ran his own law office, while also working part-time as a prosecutor for the Dearborn and Ohio County Prosecutor's Office. He also served as an attorney for the city of Rising Sun, Indiana, as well as for the county's planning commission, parks, and zoning appeals board. During his time in private practice, Sabo specialized in family law, personal injury, real estate, and bankruptcy matters.

Then, in 2008, after finding himself in a career rut, he applied for a position with the Ventura County District Attorney's Office on a whim. He was ultimately hired on in May of 2008, where he served as a senior deputy district attorney assigned to the D.A.'s Major Crimes - Gang's Unit.

In 2014, the judges of the Ventura County Superior Court selected Sabo to serve as a court commissioner. During his four-year tenure in that position, he presided over felony and misdemeanor trials and sentencing. He also heard civil, probate and family law cases.

After his appointment to the bench, Judge Sabo was assigned to a small claims, criminal, and unlawful detainers calendar.

In his free time, Judge Sabo is an avid runner. He enjoys training for and competing in marathons. His passion for them began in 1994, and since that time he has competed in numerous half marathons, marathons, and ultra marathons, his longest being a 46-mile run.
