Alameda County District Attorney Tom Orloff Announced Resignation Today

by dave id
Alameda DA Orloff -- DA since 1994 and in the prosecutor's office since the 1970s -- suddenly announced his resignation at the Alameda Board of Supervisors meeting today. Orloff was expected to retire then rather than run for re-election.

An exact reason why now is not known. Community activists had batted around the idea of recalling Orloff for his recalcitrance to prosecute Johannes Mehserle and other murdering cops, but those efforts never hit full stride. Perhaps Orloff is simply allowing his recommended replacement time to become a comfortable incumbent before next year's DA elections. He ran unopposed every time, and so it may be for his replacement.
