This is where many of the high profile cases in Los Angeles are prosecuted. The papers in my hand are those of the "Motion to Recuse All Judges of the Superior Court of California" filed by Roman Polanski and the "Verified Statement and Order" of Judge Peter Espinoza.

Roman Polanski v. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza

Written By Alberta Rose Jones, October 17, 2010, Copyright Protected

 On October 16, 2010, I became aware of what I consider to be "judicial misconduct" by the Judge overseeing the 30 year old Roman Polanski criminal rape case.

What is "judicial misconduct"?

Judicial misconduct is a term used to describe certain actions of a judge which are unethical or otherwise violate the judge's obligations of impartial conduct. Malfeasance has been defined by courts as a wrongful act which the actor (judge) has no legal right to do.

How can a sitting judge of over 20 years who has himself been appointed to the "State Judicial Council" * overlook California Code of Civil Procedure 170.3 regarding who makes the final decision in a motion to recuse a judge or judges in a case for cause? 

Not only did Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza violate the California's statutory procedure whether a judge or judges should be disqualified in a particular instance. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Espinoza  said in his verified statement that he had no "prior" knowledge of the case.  See above where Judge Peter Espinoza says that he watched the movie that Roman Polanski's defense team submitted to address the court on "judicial misconduct" in this thirty year old case. On February 18, 2009, Judge Espinoza told the Huffington Post that he had watched "the documentary**" on the thirty-year old rape case.  The documentary being "Roman Polanski Wanted and Desired."

I am more curious as to why Roman Polanski's defense team failed to use California Code of Civil Procedure 170.8 - No Judge Qualified.  Much time was spent addressing California Code of Civil Procedure 170.3 - Motion to disqualify for cause.  

** Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza said Tuesday that after watching a documentary on the case he agrees there was misconduct by the now-deceased judge who arranged a plea bargain but reneged on it. (Huffington Post) 

* The Judicial Council is the policymaking body of the California courts, the largest court  system in the nation.  Under the leadership of the Chief Justice and in accordance with the California Constitution, the council is responsible for ensuring the consistent, independent,  impartial, and accessible administration of justice.  The Administrative Office of the Courts carries out the official actions of the council and promotes leadership and excellence in court administration.

 Under the procedures established by subdivisions (c)(5) and (c)(6) of Sec. 170.3if the challenged judge elects to contest the statement of disqualification, the matter must be resolved by another judge agreed upon by the parties; or, if they are unable to agree, by a judge selected by the Chairperson of the Judicial Council.
