  • The United States District Court for the Southern District of California is a federal court in the Ninth Circuit. The District was created on September 28, 1850, following California statehood on September 9, 1850. The state was divided into a Northern and Southern district. The Judicial Circuits Act of 1866 abolished the Northern and Southern districts, re-organizing California as a single circuit district. On August 5, 1886 the Southern district was re-established, following the division of the state into Northern and Southern districts. The district was further divided on March 18, 1966 with the creation of the Central district. The United States Attorney's Office for the Central District of California represents the United States in civil and criminal litigation in the court. The current United States Attorney is Laura E. Duffy, who was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on May 28, 2010.
