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.

  • 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 […]
  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]
  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]

The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows […]
