Sacramento Family Court reform advocates have initiated a campaign to defeat divorce attorney Fredrick Cohen's campaign to be elected to a vacant judge seat in Yolo County. The opposition campaign was launched with this post at the Davis Patch website.
A group of family court reform advocates have launched a campaign to defeat Sacramento County Bar Association Family Law Executive Committee officer Fredrick Cohen's candidacy for election to the Yolo County bench. Late last month, Cohen announced he would be a candidate for a Yolo County Superior Court seat being vacated by Judge Stephen L. Mock, who will retire next January. The watchdog opposition group asserts that Cohen's conduct as a family court attorney, SCBA officer, and Sacramento County Superior Court temporary judge indicates that he lacks the ethical integrity required to be a judge. 

The group says they plan to use social media and other online sources to disseminate information about Cohen's misconduct as an attorney, including the judge pro tem lawyer's failed federal court attempt to extract $17,000 in attorney fees from an indigent, unrepresented litigant. Sacramento Family Court News previously reported that Cohen violated the Code of Judicial Ethics by using his status as a judge pro tem for advertising and promotional purposes. After our investigative report was published, Cohen removed from his website the references to his temporary judge service. The watchdog group kicked off the campaign against Cohen with a post at the Davis Patch website. Click here to view the post.
