Superior Court Clerk's office: 650-599-1170
ayres' criminal case number: SC064366

Also a reminder of other upcoming ayres hearing dates for your planner:
October 28th, 2009 will be another case management hearing for four of the civil cases against ayres for charges including and relating to child molestation, and fraud perpetrated in the guise of providing "medical care" with the intent to molest: CIV467273, CIV467741, CIV467742, CIV467743

The mainstream press is rarely (if ever) at these hearings. Usually they're brief hearings, but we find it to be disappointing that in all of the (mostly limited) press coverage that the criminal trial gets, they generally fail to mention that there are several pending civil lawsuits in process as well, and I don't think I've EVER seen any information about the status of those cases. The cases DO have "John Doe" listed as the defendant, but if you show up, it will be clear who he is. The laundry list of charges is fascinating, as will be the names of the other "John Does" if they are ever revealed.

(NOTE: there is a glitch with the court document links, and you may have to click on one of those links AGAIN after the first click results in a blank page. They should work after that. NOTE ALSO that those case information pages have some Acrobat files attached with additional detail. See the links on the right-hand side under the "Image" column.)


  1. I think John Carcione, the lawyer for three of the civil victims, could prove to be quite aggressive. He can be fearless when he wants to be. Perhaps we might see him dig up some of those old Judge Baker employee documents. Someone's gotta do it. If anyone can do it, John Carcione can.

  2. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if Etta Bryant gets called to the stand.

    They may want to ask her if she knew the cops came to pay Ayres a visit in 1987.

    When did she first know and all the other members of the PPA hold Ayres out to be competent? Someone in that building knew something, ole Ronnie Sue Leith sure has her head stuck in the sand.......

    The civil lawsuits should reveal who the additional DOES are, I would assume negligent supervision by his colleagues would make them a DOE.

    I personally hope the former partners all get sued. Bitter, they don't even know what that is yet.

    Ayres hasn't bankrupted enough of his friends as far as I am concerned.

    I hope John Carcione pierces the corporate veil that once was the Peninsula Psychiatric Associates and takes all their personal assets as well.

    Then they can really complain about bitter!

  3. David Drivon in Sacramento is representing one of the other victims. I hear he's pretty good, too.
