Support the Trial Courts Rights Act of 2011

Posted on February 22, 2011


Trial Court Rights Act

Last Friday before the window on 2011 legislation closed, the judges of this state declared a revolution against the Judicial Council and the Administrative office of the Courts and drew the line in the sand with the Trial Courts Rights Act of 2011.

With the passage of the Calderon Trial Courts Rights Act, which goes well beyond the modest proposals that Lockyer-Isenberg presented and that the AOC and Judicial Council ignored, courts will be cut loose from assimilation by the borg in San Francisco. They will be empowered to make their own business decisions for the benefit of their court. This appears to be broad business decision making authority that covers CCMS and other statewide software programs and initiatives and even covers Court Construction. It appears every time the AOC is going to charge your trust account 500 bucks for a light bulb, the trial courts will get a say as to whom that money is given to and how its spent.

Here we are blogging about it and someone took the bull by the horns and did it. Please support the Trial Court Rights Act of 2011 as an effective method to reign in that sucking sound coming in from San Francisco.

Regrettably, Michael Jackson is reaching back from his grave to collect royalties and the embed isn’t working out. I think the beetles revolution is the perfect campaign/rally song for this piece of legislation.

You say you want a revolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world.

You tell me that it’s evolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world

But when you talk about destruction
Don’t you know you can count me out

Don’t you know it’s gonna be alright
Alright Alright

You say you got a real solution
Well you know
We’d all love to see the plan.

You ask me for a contribution
Well you know
We’re all doing what we can…

But when you want money for people with minds
that hate
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait.

Don’t you know it’s gonna be alright
Alright Alright

You say you’ll change the constitution
Well you know
We all want to change your head

You tell me it’s the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead

But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao Ron
You ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow

Don’t you know know it’s gonna be alright
Alright Alright
