FILE - This June 27, 2011 file photo shows Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky, who drew criticism for sentencing former Stanford University swimmer Brock Turner to only six months in jail for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. A court has temporarily halted the campaign seeking to oust Persky for the sentence some viewed as light. Lawyers for both sides said the court on Friday, Aug. 11, 2017 stopped signature-gathering efforts to determine whether the campaign to recall Persky should be a state or county election.
