Maximum Andy

In an Orange County Business Journal cover story about our St. John's brother Andy Guilford, a U.S. District Court judge in Orange County, we learn of his continuing campaign to have Maury Wills inducted at Cooperstown, his diligence about keeping his promise never to attend an Angels game again, and a comparison that I, at least, had not heard before, growing out of his presiding in the case of former sheriff Mike Carona:
As a judge, Guilford’s most high-profile case has been the Carona corruption trial. The case had led some to compare Guilford to former federal Judge John Sirica -- who ordered Richard Nixon to turn over the Watergate tapes -- because of the role recordings played in Carona's trial.
