MISS WET ON THE NET JUDGE STRIPPED OF ROBES Former Judge Kevin Ross, infamous for adjudicating legal issues arising from a Miss Wet on the Net contest in a strip club, isn’t getting his judicial robes back. On Wednesday, the California Supreme Court unanimously refused to review a November decision by the state’s Commission on Judicial Performance that removed Ross from the bench. The 42-year-old ex-prosecutor, who was elected to the Los Angeles County Superior Court in 1998, rubbed commissioners wrong by engaging in several instances of misconduct, including the strip club incident and making inappropriate comments while acting as an arbitrator on a pilot for a reality television show. But the commissioners were most incensed by Ross’ lack of candor. “Judge Ross’ manifest and pervasive lack of honesty and accountability throughout these proceedings,” they wrote, “compel our unanimous conclusion that we must remove him from office.” Ross graduated from L.A.’s Southwestern University School of Law in 1990 and was admitted to the Bar the next year. The case is Ross v. Commission on Judicial Performance, S141120. � Mike McKee
