He implied that some judges believed it to be “deliberate and intentional” — and that the stature of the office is plummeting. According to a hearing transcript, Elias said to prosecutors that “you need to be concerned about the reputation of the office, because it’s not good.” “It’s clearly not good among the defense bar,” the judge continued. He went further, saying the reputation “was not good among judicial officers, many of whom were colleagues to people you still work with.”

In court papers filed in preparation for today’s hearing, Deputy District Attorney Katherine Flaherty said Elias’ comments show that he can’t be impartial — and that in order to protect their rights to a fair hearing, he has to step down.
