The California Commission on Judicial Performance has voted to oust Superior Court Judge John Laettner from office in Contra Costa County for “a significant amount of misconduct,” including “a pattern” of inappropriate behavior toward women.

Laettner, a 13-year veteran of the bench, was accused last year of nine counts of misconduct, including 28 allegations of wrongdoing ranging from making inappropriate comments about women’s appearances and demeanors to revoking a defendant’s own recognizance release without giving him or his attorney a chance to be heard.
