Anthony J. Mohr
A judge on the Superior Court of California for the County of Los Angeles, Anthony Mohr serves on the pilot project for complex litigation. Now in its fourth year, the program’s purpose is to enable judges to devote more attention to large cases that often languish in the courts because no one has enough time to manage them. Mohr is presiding over the Ford/Bridgestone/Firestone tire litigation, the Cooper Tire litigation, the PPA drug litigation, numerous construction and mold disputes, tobacco, asbestos and toxic tort cases and class actions involving consumer transactions, securities, antitrust, energy policy, the Internet and employment issues. Before his current assignment Mohr heard numerous civil trials and criminal matters including murder, child abuse, domestic violence and various misdemeanors. He also teaches evidence and judicial ethics to the California bench. He is the past president of the Barristers of the Beverly Hills Bar Association.
Mohr has lived in Sweden and Peru and has studied international and comparative law at the Hague Academy of International Law, the Academy of European Law at the Institut Universitaire Européan and the Faculté Internationale de Droit Comparé. He has observed trials in Cuba, Norway, the United Kingdom and at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. Conversant in French and Spanish, he now sits on the board of directors of the International Student Center at UCLA.
In addition to writing several law review articles as well as essays and op-ed pieces, which have appeared in The Christian Science Monitor, Bibliophilos, Commonweal, Currents and the Sacramento Bee, Mohr has consistently drafted more panel topics than any other CWA participant in history.
