Fil-Am CA chief justice calls for revision of “ambiguous rules” involving harassment cases against judges and court officials

In California, the state Supreme Court chief justice, Filipina American Tani Cantil-Sakauye, says the names of judges and other court officials who have entered into settle agreements to resolve sexual harassment or sexual discrimination cases should be made public.

On Tuesday, Sakauye, who is the state’s top judge, said she’s asking the California’s judicial council, which governs over the state’s courts, to revise what she calls “ambiguous rules.”

Cantil-Sakauye’s request comes after the judicial council’s March announcement that it had paid out $500,000 in taxpayer money since 2011 to settle harassment cases against judges.
