SF Superior Court Adopts Gay/Lesbian Anti-Exclusionary Policy
The Superior Court of San Francisco has adopted a policy prohibiting its members from activities that may give the appearance of bias based on sexual orientation. Adopting a statement drawn and unanimously approved by the Board of Directors of the Bar Association of San Francisco, the policy provides that judges should not participate as members in a chapter or branch of any organization that invidiously discriminates on the ground of sexual orientation by excluding members on the ground of their sexual orientation, unless the judge's chapter or branch has disavowed that invidiously discriminatory policy.
The policy is as follows: The Judicial Officers of the Superior Court for the County of San Francisco reaffirm their commitment to fairness, impartiality, the dignity of the Court, and the respectful treatment of all who appear before them and agree not to participate as a member of a branch or chapter of any organization that invidiously discriminates on the basis of sexual orientation by excluding members on the ground that their sexual orientation alone renders them "unclean", "immoral" or unfit", unless the chapter or branch to which the Judicial Officer belongs has disavowed that invidiously discriminatory policy.
Under the leadership of the Honorable Ronald Quidachay and the Honorable Donna Hitchens, both of the San Francisco Superior Court, this policy is effective immediately. "It has long been a tradition of the bench of this State, and in particular of the bench of the Superior Court in San Francisco, to respect the rights and dignity of all litigants and counsel who appear before it and to refrain from even the perception or appearance of any type of invidious discrimination, including discrimination based on sexual orientation. The San Francisco bench has always appreciated the diversity of its own members and of the citizens who have occasion to deal with the court system," said Judge Ronald Quidachay, Presiding Judge of the Superior Court of San Francisco. "We are pleased to have the opportunity to reconfirm that commitment."
"The Bar Association was very concerned about some of the language included in lawyers' briefs in Boy Scouts vs. Dale, as well as in subsequent cases, referring to homosexuals as not morally straight and unclean," said Angela Bradstreet, President of the Bar Association. "We are absolutely delighted that the San Francisco Superior Court bench has joined with the Bar Association of San Francisco in taking the lead on this issue of fairness, and has been so receptive to the concerns of litigants, jurors, lawyers, and other members of the San Francisco community involved with the judicial process. We are now approaching other metropolitan bar associations and local courts to ask them to follow the Superior Court's lead in ensuring that there is both perception and actuality of equality and impartiality in our court system for everyone."
Resolution Is Ominous For Christians In Public Office
by Rev. Rob Schenck
Just recently, the San Francisco Superior Court and city commissioners passed a joint resolution based on a bar association action that prohibits its members from joining or giving leadership to any organization that considers homosexual behavior to be "unclean" or "immoral." In commenting about the prohibition, Presiding Judge Ronald Quidachay said, "The San Francisco bench has always appreciated the diversity of its own members and of the citizens who have occasion to deal with the court system. We are pleased to have the opportunity to reconfirm that commitment."
Definitely NOT good news.
