Gov. Jan Brewer has appointed two new judges for Maricopa County.

Brewer announced Wednesday that she appointed Douglas Gerlach and Peter Thompson to the bench in Arizona's most-populous county.

Gerlach is replacing Barbara Mundell. He was previously a business attorney and took a two-year leave to serve as a public defender in the early 1990s.

Thompson has been a Maricopa County Court Commissioner since 2007 and previously was a staff attorney for the Mesa Police Department. He replaces James Keppel.
