For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C 12-04949 JSW
CITY AND COUNTY OF SAN FRANCISCO,
ORDER REGARDING LETTER
On January 21, 2014, the Court received a letter from Plaintiff’s counsel requesting that
the undersigned recuse himself due to the fact that his son is a deputy city attorney with the San
Francisco City Attorney’s Office. Out of an abundance of caution in another matter in which
the City and County of San Francisco was a defendant, the Court sought a formal opinion from
the Committee on Codes of Conduct regarding a request for recusal on precisely the same
grounds. The Committee issued a thorough opinion finding that recusal is not warranted.
Therefore, the Court denies Plaintiff’s request for recusal. The letter from the Committee on
Codes of Conduct is attached.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: January 23, 2014
JEFFREY S. WHITE
