State Bar Of California Accuses Former Yolo County Deputy District Attorney Clint Parish of Misconduct During Judicial Campaign Against Judge Dan Maguire

According to a press-release dated Feb. 14, 2013:

“The State Bar of California has filed disciplinary charges against a Yolo County attorney for allegedly failing to comply with ethical rules while seeking judicial office. Clinton E. Parish, 41, is accused of making misrepresentations about himself and his opponent in the May 2012 election for Yolo County Superior Court.

Parish’s campaign materials falsely asserted, among other things, that his opponent was “involved in a sordid case of corporate fraud that involved payment of bribes in Russia.” Parish’s campaign website erroneously claimed that he had been endorsed by the Winters Police Department and his yard signs gave the false impression that he had judicial experience.

Canon 5B(2) of the Code of Judicial Ethics adopted by the Supreme Court in 1995 states: “A candidate for election or appointment to judicial office shall not…knowingly, or with reckless disregard for the truth, misrepresent the identity, qualifications, present position or any other fact concerning the candidate or his or her opponent.” Failure to comply with Canon 5 is a disciplinary offense under rule 1-700(A) of the Rules of Professional Conduct.

Parish was admitted to the State Bar in 2000 and has no public record of discipline.

The case is being prosecuted by Deputy Trial Counsel Robert A. Henderson.”

According to the Sacramento Bee, “If the allegations are proved true, Parish could face penalties that range from a reprimand to disbarment, said Robert Hawley, State Bar deputy executive director.

“This is a serious charge. The important message is … to respect the system,” Hawley said.

Those making false statements, he said, are “impugning the integrity of the judiciary as a whole.”

  • 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 […]

    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here.

  • 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 […]
