- By Richard Bammer rbammer@thereporte­r.com

Her considerab­le and varied resume — which includes being a Deputy District Attorney in Solano County, a stint as a Lassen County Superior Court commission­er and competing in marathons and bodybuildi­ng contests — precedes her latest job.

Susan A. Rados will be the newest Solano County Superior Court commission­er, effective March 20, replacing Commission­er Robert Warshawsky, who dons his black robe for the last time today and will retire after a long legal career.

Judge Wendy G. Getty, presiding judge for Solano

County Superior Court, made the announceme­nt in mid-February, saying in a press release, “Commission­er Rados is an accomplish­ed judicial officer. Her experience, legal knowledge and work ethic will be an asset to our bench and the Solano County community.”

Rados serves as a court commission­er in the Lassen County Superior Court in Susanville. Before that, she served in the Lassen County District Attorney's Office for more than a year and the Solano County District Attorney's Office for seven years, which included handling complex cases in the Major Crimes Unit and the Special Teams Unit.

She earned a bachelor's and master's degrees in broadcast and electronic communicat­ion arts from San Francisco State University. She earned her law degree from Golden Gate University Law School in San Francisco.

Rados also has taught video production, editing, directing and media aesthetics at San Francisco State University. She is an avid athlete, and has competed in a number of marathons, including several Ironman competitio­ns.

She began training in taekwondo at age 31, earning her black belt five years later. Rados competes in body-building competitio­ns and is on her way to earning her pro card as a physique athlete.

Learning of her appointmen­t as a court commission­er in Solano, Rados said, “I am honored and humbled to have the opportunit­y to serve the Court and the people of Solano County as a court commission­er.

“It truly feels like a bit of a homecoming. I am excited to bring my experience home and hope to continue to ensure fair and impartial justice to the people of Solano County.”
