Judge Paul Seeman: arrested, still on the bench, but with freeway therapy

Thursday, June 21, 2012

That’s Alameda County Superior Court Judge Paul Daniel Seeman of Berkeley, who you may recall was arrested last week and charged with 12 felonies—one count of elder abuse and 11 counts of perjury. Prosecutors contend that the judge secretly took control of the assets of a 97-year-old neighbor from across the street after her husband died. That was last week. This week Judge Seeman is back on the bench, although reassigned from his courtroom in downtown Oakland to preside over Small Claims cases in Pleasanton. The Oakland Tribune’s Paul T. Rosynsky explains why it isn’t easy to get rid of a sitting judge.
