It’s just one of those double standards we apparently must live with, though I would think it entirely fair that a federal grand jury look into the obvious evidence that judicial council staff and their attorneys committed perjury in depositions and filings with the federal courts. After all, a federal grand jury would have jurisdiction over such matters because they happened in the federal courts.
Sure, some people have suggested that a federal grand jury could indict a ham sandwich but I think it’s about time to start indicting some ham sandwiches and stripping some pensions away from those who were involved. Additionally, those who have financially benefited from committing perjury, namely the agency that never existed, should be ordered to return all money that resulted from a tainted summary judgement.
In the end, it is about fairness and equal protection under the law.
We would like to remind our dear readers about the California’s broken branch protest that is happening right on Tani Cantil-Sakauye’s front steps at 350 McAllister on Friday, September 19th, 2014. While some may have an axe to grind on the issues of judicial accountability, the rest of us are concerned about the den of thieves, patronage and kickbacks that operates at that address with unchecked impunity and is solely responsible for costing our local courts billions of dollars in funding by wasting billions of dollars previously appropriated to them. So we would respectfully request that court employees and court unions consider joining the protest to call attention to the den of thieves we know as the judicial council. It takes about 500 people in a protest to to make the news and as of late, our friends have been avoiding the spotlight.
As much as we’ve been a strong advocate for moving state courthouse construction back to the entity that was previously responsible for it, namely the Department of General Services, there appears to be no legislative movement on the issue and that’s unfortunate. This allows the judicial council to continue to use courthouse construction as a political tool to reward those who march in lock step with the council and use it as a sword to those who refuse to speak with one tainted voice.
I think it is also about time to create a committee to explore the use of the initiative process to change article 6 of the California constitution and remove power from the hands of queen feckless. A judicial council that actually represents the courts and ultimately the people of this great state can only be achieved through democratic process, not through a dictatorship.
