Judges sitting on California courts may be incompetent, corrupt or lazy.
Even worse, many are political opportunists with a political agenda. They are “judicial activists.” A judicial activist legislates from the bench. Instead of strictly interpreting California law, these judges make the laws. Instead of applying the law to facts, they impose their own values on us all.
It is the voters of California and the legislatures that are supposed to make laws. Not judges. In fact, these judges ignore the law in favor of their own liberal, left-wing, anti-family agendas.
Legislating from the bench, these judges destroy or weaken constitutional protection, votes by the people, family values, marriage, religious liberty and economic freedom.
here are the outrageous things judicial activists have done
Overturned voter-passed initiatives and laws passed by the state legislature, simply because they personally have a different belief system. They twist the law to rationalize their decisions.
Imposed own moral codes
Imposed their own moral codes, political beliefs and secular values in an effort to reshape our society and promote social engineering.
The proper role of a judge is to fairly interpret the law to the facts of a particular case in order to arrive at a fair judgment. But that is not happening today in many courts.
INSTEAD, ACTIVIST JUDGES HAVE BEEN ADVANCING A POLITICAL AGENDA THAT
Destroys the separation of powers
Weakens the structure of federalism
Usurps the right of the people to govern themselves
Undermines protection of religious freedoms and the First Amendment
Seeks to impose their personal beliefs on certain issues, regardless of law
Is biased against free enterprise and is anti-growth—resulting in higher taxes and regulations, fewer jobs and less opportunity for our future
PURE AND SIMPLE, IT’S POLITICS FROM THE BENCH.
How We Research and Rate the Candidates
We research the candidates very carefully. We talk to many on the phone. We have evaluated their rulings, who appointed them, their endorsements and other criteria. Our recommendations are posted here for every judicial election.
Judicial Index (JI)
American Bar Association ratings
How we come up with a final rating
We come up with the final rating by taking the average of the candidate’s Judicial Index and Qualifications. For example, if the candidate had a Judicial Index of 8 and Qualifications of 6, their overall rating would be 7.
How you get your winners/losers
Most Superior Court races are two candidates running against each other. The one with the most votes win.
For the California Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals, you vote “Yes” or “No.” The judges do not compete. If more than 50% say yes, they are winners. If more than 50% say no, they lose.
The best candidate. Our strongest endorsement.
Vote only to prevent worse candidate(s) from winning
Terrible. Do Not Vote. All your other votes will count.

“Thanks very much for all you’re doing. I really appreciate your recommendation on judges. I vote no unless I know something about judges.”Russ N
