The murder trial of 17 year old Brandon McInerney, charged with shooting his 15 year old classmate Larry King in Feb. 2008, defense attorney Robyn Bramson filed a formal complaint accusing Judge Charles Campbell of bias after he used the word "queer" in court and suggested that Brandon's mother is a lesbian. Bramson asked the judge to remove himself from the case. The judge denied the request. According to a tape recording in Fox LA reporter Christina Gonzala's story, Bramson said:
"I think your honor's previous reference to Larry King as "queer" is evidence of bias against sexual orientation.... Your honor's specific use of the word 'queer' and the manner in which you talked about Kendra's McInerney's sexual orientation, I think it's very possible your honor may be aware that I am not heterosexual either."
