Solano County Superior Court Judge Cynda Riggins-Unger is facing recall petitions over claims that she is rude to female litigants. Petitioners would need about 25,000 signatures to get on the ballot.
The attempt against Riggins-Unger follows an effort against another Soloano Judge, Daniel Healy. The Healy recall effort doesn’t seem to have gone anywhere, but Healy is now just assigned criminal cases and no longer hears family law cases.
I’ve mentioned before how unusual it is for a recall of a judge to go anywhere, so I wouldn’t expect anything from this. But even the act of taking petitions is unusual.
