Appointed By: Gov. Courken George Deukmejian, Jr.

Biography

The Hon. David M. Schacter (deceased) served as a judge for the Los Angeles County Superior Court in California. Schacter was appointed to the bench by former Governor George Deukmejian in 1985. He retired in 2007 and joined the Assigned Judges Program.

Prior to his appointment, Schacter sat as a commissioner for the Santa Monica Municipal Court, a position to which he was selected in 1981.

Schacter earned a bachelor’s degree in English literature from California State University, Northridge in 1963. He then completed a J.D. at San Fernando Valley College of Law in 1968. While in law school, Schacter worked part-time as a laborer on movie sets.

After graduating from law school, Schacter began his legal career with the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office. He started as a deputy city attorney, prosecuting obscenity and other sex-related crimes before heading the appellate division. Then, in 1973, he became a senior research attorney for the Hon. L. Thaxton Hanson of the California Second District Court of Appeal. He worked in that capacity until 1975, at which time he joined the Long Beach City Attorney’s Office, representing the Board of Harbor Commissioners and defending civil rights claims in federal court.

Schacter was born in Toronto in 1941. His father worked in sales and his mother performed secretarial work. As a child, he moved with his family to Southern California, eventually becoming a United States citizen. Schacter held a patent for a VHS-related mechanism and was an avid collector of British lead toy soldiers and vintage cameras. He also maintained a motorcycle sidecare business.

He passed away on February 25, 2010.
