Ninth Circuit Rejects Claim UC President Mark Yudof Immune Under the 11th Amendment (TLR Note: Many Democratic Operatives Have Close and Unsettling Ties to the UC System: James Brosnahan, Joe Dunn, Judge William Fletcher, Michael Peevey, …)

The panel upheld San Francisco U.S. District Senior Judge Samuel Conti, who refused to grant Yudof immunity under the 11th Amendment but dismissed the suit for failure to state a claim.

Applying two past cases, the panel noted that Yudof has a “fairly direct” connection to the enforcement of Prop 209. “He is duty-bound to ensure that his employees follow it and refrain from using race as a criterion in admission decisions,” Judge Barry Silverman wrote for the panel. Silverman rejected Yudof’s argument that he is merely “implementing,” not “enforcing” it.

  • Another round of construction stimulus? 2020/05/25
    Today, they say that some 42% of those jobs where people were laid off will not return anytime soon. Much like the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act provided billions for shovel ready projects, it may happen again. But will the judicial council drop the ball again and refuse the money AGAIN? Probably. They dislike the […]
  • The number of county courts open today should be zero. 2020/03/19
    Social isolation and maintaining a six foot distance from each other is critical to flattening the curve. It’s entirely irresponsible to require in-person appearances of anyone when social isolation cannot be maintained. Any court requiring people to appear is issuing the equivalent of a death sentence for some and a sickness sentence for others. That’s […] […]
  • Give more money to the Judicial Council for Court Construction? Have we gone mad in Sacramento? 2019/09/06
    Below is a judicial branch synopsis from a legislative analysis of infrastructure needs for the state. I think it is prudent to point out that the judicial council only feigns adhesion to fraud, waste and abuse laws and actually worked aggressively to weaken the laws pertaining to judicial branch whistleblowers. They did this by creating […]
  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]
  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]
