No. The recall campaign is the only realistic option to remove Judge Persky from office. If we don't take action by recalling Judge Persky, he will remain on the bench until he is up for re-election in 2022.
Many filed complaints against Judge Persky with the Commission on Judicial Performance in the hopes that he would be removed or disciplined. However, the result of those complaints was a one-sided, closed-door proceeding that resulted in an error-ridden report (the “Persky Report”) by an agency with a long history of protecting judges.
