CITY AND COUNTY OF SAN FRANCISCO, et al., ORDER REGARDING LETTER REQUESTING RECUSAL 13 Defendants. 14 / 15 16 On January 21, 2014, the Court received a letter from Plaintiff’s counsel requesting that 17 the undersigned recuse himself due to the fact that his son is a deputy city attorney with the San 18 Francisco City Attorney’s Office. Out of an abundance of caution in another matter in which 19 the City and County of San Francisco was a defendant, the Court sought a formal opinion from 20 the Committee on Codes of Conduct regarding a request for recusal on precisely the same 21 grounds. The Committee issued a thorough opinion finding that recusal is not warranted. 22 Therefore, the Court denies Plaintiff’s request for recusal. The letter from the Committee on 23 Codes of Conduct is attached. 24 25 26 27 28 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: January 23, 2014 JEFFREY S. WHITE UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
