Thank you to the women who organized the campaign to Recall Persky and the thousands of my neighbors who made the historic win possible. We have proved that just like reproductive rights, gun control and other issues, violence against women is a voting issue. Candidates who want the vote of women and our allies better…
A Palo Alto resident explains why she will be voting to recall Judge Persky on June 5.
On Tuesday evening at Stanford Law School, Stanford Law Professor Mark Lemley and Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of UC Berkeley’s law school, debated the merits of recalling Judge Aaron Persky ’84 M.A. ’85.
After being widely criticized for what many considered an overly lenient sentence for Brock Turner, Judge Aaron Persky ’84 M.A. ’85 faces what his supporters, such as retired Santa Clara County Superior Court judge LaDoris Cordell, admit is an uphill battle in countering the highly visible campaign to recall him from the Santa Clara County Superior Court.
Once the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors officially placed Judge Aaron Persky’s recall on the June 5, 2018 ballot, Angela Storey, a civil attorney based in San Jose, entered the race to replace Persky in the event of a successful recall.
Cindy Hendrickson ’87, one of the six assistant district attorneys (DA) on DA Jeff Rosen’s executive team, announced her intent to run for Judge Aaron Persky’s seat last spring, before the recall was officially placed on the ballot.
The petition to recall Judge Aaron Persky ’84 A.M. ’85, the presiding judge in the sexual assault case against former Stanford student Brock Turner, reached nearly 100,000 signatures Thursday. The petition comes as part of a campaign to to recall Persky for the lenient sentence of former Stanford swimmer Brock Turner through the June ballot.
While the recall campaign continued to achieve success in fundraising and petitioning under the direction of Stanford Law School professor Michele Dauber, it was met this summer with increasingly frequent challenges from a growing campaign in support of retaining Judge Persky.
