The review of candidates was conducted by the Judiciary Committee of the OCBA, which is comprised of a diverse group of 34 attorneys, all in practice for at least 10 years. Each of the candidates was asked to complete a detailed questionnaire and to participate in a personal interview. The process for all of the candidates included independent review in order to reach the final rating. The Committee considers the character, temperament, professional aptitude, and experience of the candidates, without regard to political considerations. The OCBA does not endorse any candidate for election and provides this information as a public service.

    Vote NO Andrew Stein for Judge in Orange County superior court office #3-he defended a dirtbag animal abuser, Kim Nitzato, who starved a German shepherd and got her a plea down from a felony to a misdameanor. 2010-Courage was found near death, xrays showed he was eating dirt and rocks to survive, when he was found, he was not able to lift his head, was approx 35# and cried all the way to the hospital. I am Courage’s voice, Vote no for Andrew Stein for judge the only thing he should run for is president of a dirt and rock farm and be made to eat the rocks. https://youtu.be/gEjXVnqhn_8

I am Courage’s voice, Vote no for Andrew Stein for judge; he threatened one of the volunteers of the group that rescued Courage during the trial phase – warning the volunteer to not post anything negative about his dirtbag client or he’d sue her. I can’t imagine what kind of judge he would be, scary to think.

    Steiner – not qualified. That seems to sum it up pretty well.
