The Chino City Council formally called for the resignation of San Bernardino Superior Judge Cara Hutson at their meeting Feb. 7.
The council blames Hutson for the death of Riverside Sheriff’s Deputy Isaiah Cordero. The shooter, William Shae McKay, was out on bail and awaiting sentencing after being convicted in Hutson’s courtroom.
San Bernardino Superior Court is ethically prohibited from commenting on specific cases.
“The court does not have a position on the council’s action taken last Tuesday. However, neither the presiding judge nor any other judge has authority to review, alter, or modify rulings or decisions of another judicial officer,” wrote Julie Van Hook, San Bernardino Superior Court
