SUED – Embattled California Court of Appeal Justice Jeffrey Johnson faces another sexual harassment suit, this time filed by a judicial assistant who said she endured five years of his “unwelcome, inappropriate conduct of a sexual nature.” As Cheryl Miller reports, plaintiff Trisha Velez is one of more than a dozen attorneys, court employees and security officers who told judicial conduct investigators that Johnson acted inappropriately going back to 2009. A disciplinary hearing on those allegations is scheduled for next week. Velez’s complaint is the second suit filed against the judge and the state by a court worker since allegations of his conduct went public in 2018.
