Biography

The Hon. Cary H. Nishimoto is a judge for the Los Angeles County Superior Court in California. He was elevated to the Superior Court in 1987 after serving on the Municipal Court.

Judge Nishimoto received his B.A. from the University of California. He went on to earn his J.D. from California Western School of Law.

Judge Nishimoto might be remembered for bringing a grenade to the courthouse in 2015. Having discovered the grenade amongst a deceased relative's possessions, Nishimoto (in good faith) decided to bring it to the courthouse to turn it over to the proper authorities. After causing some alarm, the device was later found to be inactive.
