On Thursday, July 5th, over a dozen supporters attended a hearing at the Santa Cruz Courthouse for five of the Santa Cruz Eleven; Gabriella Riply-Phipps, Becky Johnson, Robert Norse, Desiree Foster, and Brent Adams.
Judge Paul Burdick, one of three judges who have presided over the case filed against eleven individuals for their alleged involvement in the occupation of 75 River St., said the papers submitted by Assistant District Attorney Rebekah Young did not address the question of timeliness for filing a 170.6 challenge. Judge Burdick ruled against the DA's "untimely" 170.6 motion seeking to have him dismissed from the case.
Judge Burdick, who previously expressed that he would rather not have to preside over this case anymore, stated, "Once again, we are stuck with each other Ms. Young."
