Commission Approves DC Judge Who Unconstitutionally Infringes on First Amendment Religious Freedoms for Another 15-year term.
Our Response: Letter to the President
of the United States
We are grateful, Mr. President, for your valiant efforts to defend the First Amendment in the face of judicial decisions in courts around the country that are collectively eroding individuals’ rights and freedoms. I write to inform you about a travesty of justice recently committed in the District of Columbia Superior Court. Tens of thousands of people, including myself, have suffered religious discrimination at the hands of Judge Laura Cordero of that court... Judge Cordero’s unconstitutional ruling on this case [“Family Fed. for World Peace and Unification vs Hyun Jin Moon, et al” (No. 2011 CA 003721 B)] not only trampled on the First Amendment rights of the defendants, but also on the rights of people of faith worldwide.
Compounding this injustice was the recent decision to award Judge Laura Cordero with a “well qualified” reappointment on April 27, 2020 by the DC Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure (the “Commission”). This decision was rendered in spite of her numerous judicial errors and 5,000 emails to the Commission objecting to her reappointment... Cordero’s reappointment should have been at the discretion of your office, Mr. President. Regrettably, it appears that the Commission is one of the entrenched governmental entities determined to maintain the status-quo of the DC “swamp” by preventing your office from exercising its authority to appoint competent and honest judges.
Concerned people from around the world submitted letters to the commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure, voicing concern over Judge Laura Cordero’s lack of impartiality and professionalism.
