Judge Sues San Joaquin County Over Courthouse Attack
A Stockton judge who was attacked in her courtroom in March is taking the first steps toward suing San Joaquin County.

Judge Cinda Fox was attached in her courtroom by a murder suspect wielding a six-inch metal spike. The suspect was shot and killed by a Lodi Police officer.

Shortly thereafter, Fox removed herself from a high profile case involving the relatives of a teenage boy found shackled and dirty.

Fox alleges San Joaquin County failed to provide adequate security that could have prevented the attack.
