The city council accepts the recommendation of the Judicial Committee to not reappoint five municipal court judges.  One of those judges, Beverly Landers, said she was targeted by the committee for trying to hold city leaders accountable.
 
Landers, who worked as a judge for 21-years, says the committee refused to let any of them see the data or be a part of the process.  Three council members -- Ann Kitchen, Pio Renteria, and Ellen Troxclair -- abstained, citing their concerns about the secretive way the committee made its decision.
