The CCMS / SEC / OCCM Hangover

September 4, 2012

1

Good morning California! Welcome back to the grindstone after a long labor day weekend. This morning most of us woke up with a quasi-hangover. Some of us stumbled into work and most everyone else is working from home or called in exhausted. While over the past five weeks remodeling was being done around us, all […]

Editorial: Courts need to re-think workarounds for the civil bar

August 29, 2012

11

One of the most striking examples of how to attract  the attention of 190,000 attorneys in this leadership crisis was how the Ministry of Truth artfully employed bar associations and the state bar to make this fight all about the Judicial Council and the AOC getting more budget. Of course, we have to believe that […]

ACJ Letter to the Judicial Council, SEC &E&P committees

August 17, 2012

  You’ll note an ongoing theme of AOC management. When someone releases a report that is highly critical of their operations, they close ranks, take down the dirty laundry curtains, go wash the dirty laundry curtains and put them back in the window and declare they built a new and much improved house with the […]

August 10, 2012 Dear Members and Others, Just when you thought you had heard everything, Alliance director Judge Kevin McCormick flips over a rock and, lo and behold, more evidence of insular, out-of-touch decision making by the Administrative Office of the Courts is found.

AOC  under-reporting of special funds account balances Before we get to the meat and potatoes of this mornings post: Remember the recent scandal where State Parks were pleading poor and unable to keep state parks open?

Mr. Dydzak has filed his amended complaint in Orange County Court. Link: Dydzak v. Dunn OCSC Amended Complaint 5.2.12 This amended, verified complaint names those people who Mr. Dydzak believes to be responsible for and engaged in racketeering under 18USC1962 as well as a raft of other allegations. We would imagine that many people can provide […]

AOC vs Jacobs Facilities, Jacobs Project Management, Jacobs Engineering Group

May 5, 2012

. Just concluded was a sham trial with a predetermined result. That predetermined result was that the AOC will lose and that Jacobs will win. It took a conscious effort by the AOC’s legal team led by none other than Mary “the lizard” Roberts and by Peter Krause, a former AOC attorney who is now […]

Saving the California Dream – One redacted page at a time

There are lots of reasons to pull the plug on CCMS. One of the most compelling reasons to pull the plug is Tani’s version of transparency and accountability. Not unlike Tani’s truth, there are only versions of transparency and accountability. For some time now our more conservative opponents in this fight for truth, justice and […]

Now What? Continued delusions or some meaningful action?

February 13, 2012

We’re finally starting to see a tiny bit of snail-like movement over at the AOC. To be sure, digital purgatory is starting to look much better but there is still work to be done. There’s a series of rumors floating around in another thread that we’re also trying to confirm. . . As General Woodhull […]

While CSLB busts ten for contracting without a license, judicial branch unlicensed contractors get a free pass

January 24, 2012

42

Ten people were recently caught in Amador County for attempting to contract without a contractors license. While we applaud the effort of the Contractors State Licensing Board’s SWIFT enforcement teams, we continue to question why at least 5 unlicensed contractors who received tens of millions of dollars from the AOC get quasi-judicial immunity for contracting […]

Tani’s Civics Lesson: The responsibility of the legislature

December 16, 2011

Tani’s Civics Lesson: The responsibility of the legislature . . We can grasp that it is probably a bit difficult to understand the responsibility of a legislature when your family roots are in a country with a propped up dictator and a puppet regime of loyal supporters.
