San Diego Superior Court Judicial Candidate Lisa Schall’s Answer to Voters’ Questions

by Sharon Noonan Kramer
On March 7, 2014, while fundraiser for re-election to San Diego Superior Court seat 20, incumbent Judge Lisa Schall sent an e-blast asking people to forward her fundraising email and offering to answer any questions. As directed, the email was forwarded to others.
On March 13, 2014, over twenty voters’ questions were compiled for Judge Schall to answer.  They were emailed to her on the 13th to the return email address she provided. On the 14th, the questions were snail mailed to her home address.
Here is Candidate for Public Office Judge Lisa Schall’s answer to the Voters’ questions:

 Additionally on March 14th a COMPLAINT was filed with San Diego Presiding Judge David Danielson. It is regarding the unethical campaign tactics being used by Schall’s jurist peers on her behalf.  Several media outlets* have written of the local sitting judges conspiring to intimidate the challenger to Schall’s public office, Carla Keehn, and to coerce Keehn’s endorsers to un-endorse her. This includes coercing a local bar association, a.k.a. lawyers, to alter their organization’s election policies after-the fact as a non-sensical excuse to rescind a valid endorsement.
In violation of California Rules of the Court, Rule 10.703(f)(3) no written acknowledgment of the March 14th COMPLAINT has been received from the office of the Superior Court Presiding Judge Danielson.  Rule 10.703(f)(3) states, “The presiding judge must give written notice of receipt of the complaint to the complainant.”
In the meantime, San Diego County’s chief law enforcement officer, District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, was previously advertised on Schall’s website as her #1 Endorser.  Dumanis’ name and title have now disappeared from Schall’s website. 
Dumanis herself is running for re-election as San Diego County District Attorney. This is under calls for her investigation, more calls for her investigation, and even some of her local government endorsers directing how to call for her investigation. (Yea right! By Dumanis’ state government endorser, Kamala Harris, who seems to think one needs an attorney to report crimes by government officials and that those one complains of should be in charge of investigating themselves).  
The June elections are now just forty-five days away.  There is no indication that the local jurists will be admonished by the San Diego Superior Court for their conclusively unethical election tampering while violating the rights of a challenger candidate and the rights of voters. It’s highly unlikely that Dumanis endorser, Harris — who is herself running for re-election — will do any investigating of any politician in the near future.   
Should Judge Schall win re-election from lack of the voting public’s knowledge of the unethical politics playing out in San Diego County that are in violation of Rules of the Court and Canons of Judicial Ethics; it will be a hollow victory. Voters will have the legal right to call for a recall of jurist seat 20.  
Personally, I think I will be voting for anyone who is NOT ENDORSED by any San Diego County or California state elected or appointed official.  Too much cess-pooling of mucked-up water under the bridge!
