Judge Cooke was a partner in the law firm McDonald, Carano, Wilson, McCune, Bergin, Frankovich & Hicks LLP until she was appointed to the U.S. District Court in 1999

Hard to believe? Don’t believe us, click here and see for yourself.

This seems like a HUGE conflict of interest. Judge Cooke is attempting to mediate a settlement between Jungo Land and Investments and Humboldt County regarding the proposed Jungo Landfill. Jungo Land and Investments is represented by John Frankovich and McDonald, Carano, Wilson, her old legal firm partners. No wonder she kept telling the insurance pool lawyers that they had to settle because they were going to lose. Something is very wrong here. Appearances do matter.

Please write Nevada officials and share your concerns about Judge Cooke’s relationship with the prosecuting law firm and her direction to Humboldt County in the matter of settling this lawsuit.
