CJP: Remove All Santa Clara County Judges Who Attended Bar Association Holiday Luncheon

This petition had 24 supporters

On December 2, 2016, as the Commission on Judicial Performance decided not to discipline or remove Judge Persky, Santa Clara County Family lawyers and judges attended a county Bar  sponsored holiday luncheon where they sang holiday songs with lyrics that flaunted  the excessive fees judges have given Santa Clara family lawyers in divorce and probate cases, where many litigants are often forced to act self-represented.

Domestic Violence victims, divorce and probate litigants  who have lost custody of their children,  faced unlawful property division or been financially decimated by unlawful  support  or attorney fee orders issued by these judges, were not amused.

Court Staffers and Judges in attendance at the Santa Clara County Bar Association luncheon were invited  by Judge James Towery, who has a long ethically compromised history of his own. Judge Towery made the arrangements through a private Gmail account.

When Towery discovered the holiday sing had been captured by photographers and reporters covering the high profile divorce cases before him, Towery retaliated , abusing his  judicial authority even further when he   continued to put the domestic violence victim of former 49er Ray Mc Donald and a young child in mortal danger.

Towery is also reported to have misused his office in an effort to have members of the media harassed and detained by the bailiffs regularly assigned to his department.

Many of the  Judges attending the Santa Clara Bar Association luncheon have faced CJP discipline in the past. The CJP is toothless and ineffective state agency that has ignored judicial misconduct for decades, at the public's peril. 

Discipline is not enough. Please join us in demanding the CJP, or State Legislators,  REMOVE Santa Clara County Judges from the Bench:  

Judge Aaron Persky, Judge James Towery, Judge Mary Ann Grilli, Judge Huber, Judge Rudy, Judge Pegg, Judge Pichon, Judge Emede, Judge Scott, Judge Woodhouse, Judge Weinstein, Judge Lie,  Judge Folan, and any other judge who participated  in this event, making a mockery of the public, the legal system and our most vulnerable citizens.
