American democracy “may well be at risk” as judicial campaigns turn into special-interest funded political contests in which candidates are pressured into taking political stances, Fourth District Court of Appeal Presiding Justice Judith McConnell told a community forum.
McConnell, who in addition to presiding over Div. One is the chair of the Commission on Judicial Performance and a member of the Statewide Commission for Impartial Courts, made the remarks Thursday night at Southwestern Law School.

“Changes in construction methods have caused US buildings to become perfect petri dishes for mold and bacteria to flourish when water is added. Instead of warning the public and teaching physicians that the buildings were causing illness; in 2003 the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform, a think-tank, and a workers comp physician trade organization mass marketed an unscientific nonsequitor to the courts to disclaim the adverse health effects to stave off liability for financial stakeholders of moldy buildings. Although publicly exposed many times over the years, the deceit lingers in US courts to this very day.” Sharon Noonan Kramer
