She will supervise the City Attorney’s Port operations & serve as in-house counsel to Port management and the Los Angeles Harbor Commission.

Janna Sidley replaces Tom Russell, who retired from the position last year.
 
“Janna will lead a talented legal team already in place at the Port, providing strong leadership and experience in her new role,” said Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich.  “The Port is a critical economic engine to our city and I’m confident that Janna and her team will do an outstanding job with the diverse legal issues involved in operating the nation’s busiest port.”

Sidley joined the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office in 2003 and has worked as a trial deputy specializing in workers' compensation fraud and unfair business practices. In 2006, she was assigned to the Harbor Department, focusing on California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) matters. In 2010, Sidley transferred to the Department of Water and Power and has been responsible for all legal compliance requirements related to CEQA and NEPA.
