Election to the California Bench and Subsequent Removal
Ross clerked for David W. Williams while in law school. Judge Williams, a fellow black Republican, would administer the oath of office to Ross after he was appointed to the Inglewood Municipal Court. Ross was the youngest elected judge in the state of California at the time. After a ballot initiative passed by California voters, Ross was elevated to the Superior Court the following year. Ross handled approximately 60,000 cases during his seven years on the bench, ranging from traffic and minor claims cases to juvenile delinquents, sexually aggressive predators, and murderers. Ross began participating on the PBS program to address legal topics from a judge’s perspective after being profiled on KCET’s Life & Times Tonight. He also stressed the significance of Blacks becoming police officers, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges to ensure that minorities were treated equitably in the legal system. Judge Ross was removed from office by the Commission on Judicial Performance (CJP) in 2005, citing violations of judicial canons relating to defendants’ constitutional rights, public comments made on KCET, and his participation in a television court show pilot. Ross unsuccessfully appealed the CJP’s decision to the California Supreme Court, which resulted in him being barred from practicing law in the state. Neither the first “Mobile Court,” produced by Endemol and Tribune Entertainment, nor the follow-up Twentieth Television program “Ross is Boss,” were picked up for syndication by television stations.
