Diverse appointments to superior, appeals courts
Gov. Jerry Brown appointed a former State Bar leader to a judgeship in Contra Costa County on Friday. He also nominated a former San Francisco school board attorney as the first Latino on the state appeals court in San Jose, and chose a Los Angeles prosecutor as California's first Muslim judge...
Halim Dhanidina, 39, of Los Angeles to the Los Angeles County Superior Court. Dhanidina has been a deputy district attorney since 1998 and will be the first Muslim on the bench in California, said Aziza Hasan of the Muslim Public Affairs Council. She said the appointment sends a message to Muslim Americans that "access and power within the system are achievable goals."

Here we go. Rose Bird worked out so very well for Jerry the Fairy in his last incarnation. These people will also turn out to be failures that have to be impeached as was Bird, but only after they do a lot of damage.
Physical diversity once again is always more important to libs than intellectual diversity or point of view.

I *love* that slinky graphic!
Rose Bird was not impeached. She failed to gain the periodic voter reconfirmation required by the California Constitution.
You are right, but the end result was the same. I should have remembered that time when I voted against her reaffirmation.
It is important to remember, because it was one of the most successful conservative campaigns in the State's history, differing so greatly from the Federal SCOTUS that I'd bet most Californians don't realize that we have such an option. We're probably going to need it again when Brown gets done.
“We’re probably going to need it again when Brown gets done.”
Brown is done already! He looks like crap and he’s starting to stamp his feet like the spoiled child that he’s always been. If his soak the rich initiative fails, he’s going to implode. Justice is having him trying unsuccessfully to clean up the mess he created back when he was Boy Governor. He will never do what is necessary to put this once wonderful state on a track back to solvency. My wife worked with a woman many years ago who was the Brown Sr.’s next door neighbor in San Francisco. She always maintained that the Brown children (Jerry and his sister Kathleen) were weird.
You never know in that city. He strikes me as a victim of pedophilia and might be repressing the memory. Of course, that could be a projection of mine because it happened that way for me, but I was blessed enough to get through it. It's the hunch of one who's been there.

Maybe, because he studied to be a Jesuit Priest before giving up the church for politics like his worthless father, Edmund G “Pat” Brown. Who was governor before Reagan and was responsible for building freeways to nowhere like the Embarcadero Fwy in San Francisco which was damaged by the Loma Prieta Quake and was finally torn down. He allowed CalTrans to run roughshod over the property owners for land for freeways. I guess they were turds of a feather floating in the same RAT punchbowl.
You are addressing a fourth-generation Californian who has written a whole book on government land racketeering here). Jerry is delivering upon papa's dream: getting "investors" to pay to build the California water project and hold the land for forty years, rip them off with environmental regulations (delta smelt), and cash in on a chain of insta-cities in the Sacramento / San Joaquin Valley connected with high-speed rail. DiFi is hip deep in it too. So is CalPERS. The players are making huge dollars in pump-n-dump stock schemes. The unions provide the cash flow, holding the bag long enough to hand it to the taxpayers.
A former employee of the State Bar of California who California Governor Jerry Brown appointed to the Contra Costa County Superior Court bench under questionable circumstances involving his cousin, former California Public Utility Commissioner Geoffrey Brown is accused in federal court of committing myriad financial crimes and acts of fraud.
Documents filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia reveal that Judy Johnson of Rodeo allegedly engaged in predicate acts of racketeering through and by means of money laundering, mail and bank fraud, as well as conversion of funds.
Johnson, female, black, is no stranger to financial schemes. For the past 8 years, she has been quietly serving as the president of an entity with a misleading name (California Consumer Protection Foundation AKA “CCPF”). This entity absorbed close to $30 million in class action cy pres awards, as well as fines and settlements imposed by the California Public Utilities Commission on utility companies. CCPF forwarded those funds to mostly questionable ACORN-like entities in South Los Angeles or to an entity headed by Michael Shames known as UCAN — presently under federal grand jury investigation in San Diego.
It appears that Johnson misused her position with the State Bar of California as “clout” to obtain cy pres awards from the settlement of class actions prosecuted and defended by various law firms in courts and before the CPUC. In addition, while never prosecuted for the scheme, some have speculated that Johnson and cohorts Robert Hawley (whom Johnson labeled the “Wizard of OZ”) and Starr Babcock were “in” on a financial scheme perpetrated by former State Bar employee Sharon Pearl, who was lightly prosecuted by then-attorney general Jerry Brown, cousin of Geoffrey Brown.
The lawsuit, filed as a civil-racketeering action by Marina Del Rey-based community activist Daniel Dydzak, also names as a defendants Starr Babcock and Robert Hawley.
According to confidential sources familiar with the situation, Dydzak filed the suit in Washington DC, because he is extremely concerned that given the caliber of the defendants and the fact that they are in control of the justice system in California, they will seek to injure him in various ways, including in seeking to somehow derail the suit.
According to these sources, Tom Layton, investigator from the State Bar of California who is well connected with Los Angeles Sheriff Lee Baca, in the past paid a visit to Dydzaks neighborhood, and sought to convince his neighbors to falsely accuse Dydzak of various acts of misconduct, including providing improper and unlawful legal counsel.
