U.S. Judge Lucy Koh of San Jose; incompetent ignoramus

 

The state of California provided Lucy Haeran Koh with a law license in 1993 after he graduated from Harvard University School of Law.

 

President Obama was duped into nominating Lucy as a District Court Judge for the Northern District of California in San Jose in 2010. Lucy didn’t receive the nomination because she was the most qualified attorney in the greater San Jose area. She received it because she had proven to be a reliable lackey for the local political hacks.

 

In on matter, Lucy presided over the case of a 79-year-old Santa Clara University professor John M. Heineke who taught at the school since 1979 who and who sought a preliminary injunction from Lucy to lift his suspension based on alleged sexual harassment, which she summarily denied.

 

In her order denying Heineke’s injunction request and the lifting of his suspension, Lucy ignorantly ruled that injury to one’s reputation was not “irreparable.”

 

Subsequently, Heineke appealed Lucy’s asinine ruling to the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. In reversing Lucy’s ruling, the court stated in part:

  • “The district court [Lucy] erred when it interpreted this language in Sampson [Supreme Court decision] to create a per se rule for all employment cases.”
  • “Sampson specifically did not foreclose the possibility that reputational damage and emotional distress may represent irreparable harm.”
  • “Heineke has proffered evidence that he will experience emotional distress and loss of job satisfaction as a result of his suspension.”
  • “The district court [Lucy] therefore abused its discretion by interpreting Sampson to create a per se rule for all employment cases—that reputational damage, lost opportunity, and emotional distress caused by a suspension or termination cannot constitute irreparable harm—and by ignoring the impact of binding, relevant precedent from Chalk.”

Of course Lucy doesn’t much give a damn how many times her ignorant rulings are overturned by the Court of Appeals because she knows for a fact that no federal judge has ever been removed from the bench for being an ignoramus.

 

And lastly, Lucy clearly isn’t concerned about the additional costs incurred by the taxpayers as a direct result of her incompetence in this case.

 

As we speak (ca. October 2018), Lucy continues to sit as a District Court Judge for the Northern District of California in San Jose, California.
