A former Sonoma County Superior Court judge charged with misconduct by the state’s Commission on Judicial Performance has lost her bid for insurance coverage of legal expenses incurred in a federal court action aimed at enjoining the state proceedings.

On Friday, San Francisco’s 1st District Court of Appeal issued an unpublished ruling saying that the Administrative Office of the Courts’ insurer, Underwriters at Lloyd’s London, is not obligated to cover the costs of Patricia Gray’s federal action.

“We must conclude that even if the best defense here is the contemplated offense of an independent federal court action,” Justice James Marchiano wrote, “such an action brought against the CJP by the insured does not come within the policy’s coverage.”
