Today, March 11, at 10:00 AM, the Joint Legislative Audit Committee and the Assembly Budget Subcommittee 5 will hold a hearing on State Auditor Elaine Howle’s recent audit of the California Judicial Council. This audit, much like the audit of the CCMS computer project, found numerous instances of lack of oversight, mismanagement, inappropriate spending by the AOC of funds which should have been turned over to the trial courts for their operations, and exorbitant salaries and overly generous perks being given to AOC top management.

Alliance of California Judges Directors Judge W. Kent Hamlin of the Fresno Superior Court, and Judge Tia Fisher of the Los Angeles Superior Court, will speak on behalf of the Alliance of California Judges. In addition, the hearing is scheduled to be broadcast on the CalChannel and should be viewable at http://www.calchannel.com/tv-schedule/
