The judge who was stabbed by Lodi murder suspect David Paradiso is suing the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office for failing to provide enough security.

Thursday marked one year since the attack on now-retired Judge Cinda Fox. Paradiso, 29, lunged at the judge and used a hand-made metal shank to stab at the her neck — the same way Paradiso had killed his Lodi victim.

    Too bad Fawn's room mate didn't hang on to Otter. Later on he was vice president of the USA until he leaked info on the space shuttle and ailiens or something like that.

    Is Fawn Lebowitz really dead?Well according to the movie "Animal House" she is.The 1978 fraternity classic, there is a sequence where Otter (played Tim Matheson of VAN WILDER fame) goes to a women’s dorm to pick up his supposed fiancé, Fawn Lebowitz. The snag is that Fawn is dead. (She died in a tragic kiln explosion.) But Otter already knows that Fawn is dead and uses a display of feigned grief to get a date with Fawn’s sympathetic roommate and her friends.

    I think the funniest part of all is that the jurors "decided not to sue" after learning they had to go through the Worker's Comp process because they are considered employees of the County.

    Why can't some of you stay focused. ADHD I suppose. This judge got injured in the line of duty, new the risks and should not be allowed to file sue. She is trying to get rich off the system, just like all the low life pieces of S@#& that stood before her. She will prove that she is no better than them if this law suit continues.

    pressy, read my post again, I said nothing about old men, just old people. As far as a judge is concerned, rob a bank, car jack a car and see what power a judge has. It`s the jurys job to convict or dismiss the charges against a person, the judge hands down the sentence.The senate and house of this country were unanimous in that Saddam had to be removed from power, even Rodham Clinton and John Kerry signed off on it. The Kurds were killed by poison gas, is that not a weapon of mass destruction. And yes I did, and still do like George W. Bush and nuklur. He started Iraq, finished it also.Advise you re-read before you click on Post Comment.

    As I understand the situation, defense lawyers DEMAND that their client look as "normal" as possible eg: No jumpsuit, no chains no nothing but a 3 piece suit. Judges who ask for such things may receive reprimands for "contaminating" the rights of the accused. Honest lawyers and judges help me here.All jobs are fraught with peril. A school vice principal friend of mine took pistol shots from a school bus. Cinda, shut up and get out.

    Dogs, those nine old men, which they all aren't men, are the one who appointed your other heroe George W. Bush as resident and got us into this mess by overlooking those WMD's and sending us into the war that wasn't and costing more than 6000 young men and women their lives and untold tens of thousands maimed for life. Just what do judges do anymore? Aren't those criminals all afforded a pre-sentence evaluation, and depending on their background, the influence and financial stature they do or don't have, their criminal background and their sentence is already before even going into that courtroom? The judge merely announces the sentence that has already been determined by others.

    Cogito: make room for me and others who have just become members of Blogging Betty`s fan club.I`m glad Betty came up with that one rather than Jerome. The idea of 9 old people holding this country in the palm of their hands and can`t do better than a 5-4 decision, one person holds that swing vote that 300,000,000 people will have to live by, that decision made the unions and big business very happy, Obama very mad.

    Part of a judges duties are to deal with criminals, some dangerous and some just plain stupid. Why should she be allowed to sue as this is part of her job. As when she retired early she is smelling money and wants to have more than what she is already receiving. Bloggin Betty, I love the point you make. So a judge makes a mistake and lets someone out early. That person commits a crime, we should be allowed to sue the judge. She did not take appropriate measures to ensure mine and others safety by letting a known criminal go free.

    Okay, so let me see if I understand this. If a judge makes a bad decision and releases a, let's say, child molester out after serving only part of his sentence; that molester goes on to rape and kill and innocent woman--we can not sue the judge. The judge is protected under the law. But a judge can sue the Sherrif's Department for not doing THEIR job. AND jurors can't sue because they are considered employees. Isn't the judge an employee too? I want to be a judge when I grow up!!!

    Blah Blah Blah you silly Bloggers. She and her lawyer will get hers and you will pay. And I am especially happy that JR has to pay since his comments are as Un-American as you can get. I know some Soldiers who will disagree with your stupid comment. But what else to expect from someone like you? Stop crying and DO SOMETHING! We are becoming 3rd World and now the Judges are part of it to - all the way to the supreme court.

    Reader....that is a good question, what does the sheriff or any LEO have responsibility for? It sure isn't to protect individuals...if you don't believe me GO LOOK IT UP!!!! I can't say it any stronger. This misbelief that people have that the police are their to protect you has to end.Cog there may have been failure, but because the Sheriff is not liable they have no responsibility to the Judge. She should have protected herself. She could have order this prisoner brought to her is a cage, she did and was the victim of a crime, so now she get to sue. Regulars citizen could only dream of that and the supreme court has ruled time and again that the govt can't be sued for not protecting people. Get it straight and stop believe the myth perpetrated by the LEO unions "Protect and serve" my arse....

    jramagic, what's in the "genetic makeup" of the average American, is the power of the individual to achieve and get rewarded for their efforts. When a corrupt and confiscatory government pushes us so far as to warrant a bloody revolution, it will be to restore those ideals, not to impose Socialist rule.

    tjefferson you must be a tad bit illitrate. The judge didn't know about the reported weapon. How could she request for additional security for something she knows nothing about?And if the Sheriff's aren't there to protect the judge and people in the courthouse then what the hell are they getting paid to do there?I say get all you can Judge Fox... I'm sure she would rather have her career and feeling of security back than had to retire before her time.

    WHAT'S NEXT? OH I GOT IT FOX IS GOING TO SUE THE METAL MANUFACTURE WHICH PARADISO MADE HIS KNIFE FROM. THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT WILL COUNTER SUE FOX FOR NOT ORDERING THE PRISONER SHACKELED AND GAGED. THEN THE CITY OF LODI WILL SUE THE CITY OF STOCKTON FOR DETECTIVE BRADLEY'S OVERTIME. THEN WITH THE EXTRA MONEY THE CITY OF LODI WILL HIRE JUDGE FOX AS A ADVISOR, APPOINT HER HEAD OF CITY COUNCIL, OF COURSE WITH A NEW SALARY. SO SHE CAN DO WHAT SHE DOES BEST MAKE MONEY MONEY MAKE MONEY FOR THE CITY.

    In-Cogito:My comment was a general observation and I stand by it. As for the judge- I agree, sue everybody you she can...so would I.Get it while you can.As for Cuba, its high time we opened up travel and economic relations with them, like ALL he rest of the world has. Its only because the US mobsters corrupted their government that Castro came to power. That's documented history. The same sort of thing could happen here if the general population gets pushed too far.

    Jramagic, why don't you move somewhere where personal accountability to take care of ones self is not part of the "genetic makeup". Cuba would be a good choice. This action by the Judge isn't completely unexpected. She was attacked due to multiple, blatant failures on the part of the court security officers to do their job. I would sue to have them all fired for incompetence.

    Geez, sounds like everyone saw dollar signs on this case and are trying to get a little piece of the pie for themselves. The judge, her clerk, the jurors. Very disappointing. I guess it's all about the money.

    I really hope the sherrifs department pull out GC 845 and thows it in this judges face. They have no responsibility to protect any. This judge on the other had could have ordered this prisoner brought in in shackles, could have had a machine gun on the bench, whatever. It is not he responsibility of the sheriffs to protect this individual judge and she has more authority to protect herself than any old citizen does on the street. This is just another money grab by a greedy public "servant."

    Turns out the JUDGE smells money. Just like the lifetime disability benefits she will recieve. All taxpayer funded. Don't get me wrong, I don't condone what happened or how it happened I just think her exit strategy and revenge law suit is all about greed.

    This link is a video of the Sheriff speaking very unprofessionally, displaying defensive anger management issues against the reporter regarding this Courtroom Security Breach.http://cbs13.com/local/San.Joaquin.Courthouse.2.952661.html

    Unfortunately, there was a breakdown in the Sheriff's Office security. The jail failed to fully search the defendant for weapons after receiving a report which provided them with "reasonable suspicion" which would have legally allowed them to conduct a strip search. Also Sheriff Moore publicly stated that he would provide the public with the investigation results after the investigation was completed. The final report was submitted to the DA's office months ago. He campaigned on the platform of transparency, but has failed to follow through. I do not condone the filing of lawsuits, however I suspect the county will be paying a significant amount of damages for this security breach.
