Fundraiser for Judge Sanjay Kumar
Fine Arts Building, Los Angeles
Thursday, May 17, 2012 — 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm

Dear SABA Community,

As many of you know, it is incredibly rare for a sitting judge to be challenged. Unfortunately, one of the very few South Asian jurists in the State of California is being challenged — and he is being challenged because of his South Asian name. Please come to an informational meeting / fundraiser to learn about Judge Sanjay Kumar (endorsed by the LACBA, the LA DA’s office, the LA Times and everyone else you can think of) and to learn about why it’s important for our community to support him against a challenge by an attorney that has been described as a “judicial disaster” by the Metropolitan News.
Judge Kumar’s opponent has not denied the accusation that he is running against Judge Kumar because he believes that people will vote for his last name “Smith” over “Kumar” regardless of their individual accomplishments. Smith’s challenge not only is insulting to our community, but it also has far-reaching implications for the future judicial appointments of South Asian attorneys. Please attend this gathering to see what can be done to prevent this injustice.
