Publicly admonished dishonored Judge Carol Elswick of L.A. Superior Court #156 is being challenged by Former Carson Mayor Attorney Albert Robles in the June 2022 elections.
The Commission on Judicial Performance recently admonished the Wilson appointee for civil rights violations including unlawfully remanding solely Asian and Latinos without proper hearings. She also warned defendants not exercise their rights to make bail or they would face her further wrath.
Elswick has never faced voters for election approval since originally appointed to the court in 1993.
Unchallenged Judges are automatically confirmed as elected and do not appear on any ballot for voter approval. Albert Robles’ June 7, 2022 challenge will present the voters of the County of Los Angeles their first opportunity to approve the publicly admonisished and dishonored judge’s performance.
