Jeffrey A. Lake for Nevada County Superior Court Judge?

Jeffrey A. Lake from San Diego, California, has just announced that he is running for the seat from which the Honorable Sean P. Dowling is retiring. A little while ago, I saw the posting on Yubanet which is here, and I wondered why the editor of Yubanet was actually at the elections office (behind the counter no less) when Mr. Lake filed his paper work.

It turns out that Mr. Lake specializes in medical marijuana cases and is the attorney for Americans for Safe Access - Nevada County as is shown here on Yubanet's own website. Such information was left out of the "report" by Yubanet.

So not only does Mr. Lake live nearly 600 miles from Nevada County, he is a one trick pony that concentrates on and specializes in medical marijuana cases. Both facts (the fact that medical marijuana cases are his primary focus) were conveniently omitted from his press release, and the subsequent report by Yubanet (and Jeff Pelline for that matter).

Certainly, we do not need political marijuana activist from San Diego on the bench in sleepy Nevada County.

Google tells you everything that you need to know here.



    Truer words were never spoken.

  2. Jeff Pelline also left out the fact that Jeff Lake lives in San Diego. Lake states that his practice is split between Nevada County and San Diego. "Split" usually means "half," and with only one client in Nevada County, can we then assume that Lake only has two clients? Not likely. Split likely means all of his clients are in Southern California, but he has one in Nevada County. By such definition of "split," my practice is split between Shasta, Butte, Sierra, Fresno, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, Contra Costa, San Joaquin, Sacramento, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Placer, and Nevada County...oh...and Las Vegas too.

  3. And why were you not at the Casino last night? LOL!

  4. I was judging a gymnastics meet at Cal. Cal beat Arizona State by a comfortable margin. Good time.

  5. This Lake fellow will be Pellines and Frisch's guy. Probably the Emery's too. Too funny.

  6. Jeff Lake...
