LOS ANGELES—A suit to concern an injunction versus LA District Attorney George Gascón from hiring “unqualified” deputy public protectors is closer to setting a trial date, according to an April 20 judgment from Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff.
The suit, submitted by the Association of Deputy District Attorneys in October of 2021, declares Gascón workedwith 3 “unqualified political cronies” of the LA County Public Defenders’ workplace early last year who were “political fans” of his election project in 2020.
The association declares it has “standing to takelegalactionagainst on behalf of its members who have … been negatively impacted” by Gascón’s “unlawful promo” of unqualified public protectors rather than those who are certified within their ranks.
A representative for the association, which represents more than 800 deputy district lawyers in LA County, informed The Epoch Times in an e-mail that throughout this week’s hearing, Gascón’s counsel askedfor a trial date in December.
However, the judge “was not responsive to that concept,” according to association agent Eric Rose and rather set June 8 as the date to set the trial.
Gascón is dealingwith a recall effort, which might possibly be on the Nov. 8 tally, if petitioners collect 566,857 confirmed signatures by July 6.
The lawyer’s association is signedupwith by anumberof other companies supporting Gascón’s recall, consistingof the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs and the Los Angeles Police Protective League.
