GOP candidate announces 2020 run for Orange County Court judge

A former chief assistant county attorney declared her candidacy this week for the Orange County Court seat that Judge Robert Freehill will vacate next year after reaching the mandatory retirement age of 70.

Hyun Chin Kim, who worked in the Orange County Attorney’s Office for 13 years and ultimately supervised all civil litigation for the office, made her campaign announcement on Thursday, after filing papers on Dec. 3 to open a fundraising committee.

Kim is a Republican and has been working since 2018 as the court attorney for Orange County Court Judge William DeProspo, whom she now will be looking to join on the bench. Orange County has three county court judges, all of them Republican. Elections are for 10-year terms.
