When the Legislature enacted SBX2-11 in an attempt to legalize the County payments, the Judges were still conflicted. The Commission on Judicial Performance is challenging the Constitutionality of the legislation. But the Judicial conflict is undermining the Justice system and now the Democratic process. Judges should not sit on cases where they have received money from a party to the case (L.A. County) as it violates the law and Judicial Canons of Ethics.
