Democracy Now!

November 5, 2014


Last week, the Judicial Council voted unanimously to deny emergency funding to the Del Norte, Siskiyou, and Mono Superior Courts. All three counties had bought into the Council’s predictions of a more generous judicial branch budget; now they find themselves running on empty. Del Norte was looking for $300,000, Mono for $82,000, and Siskiyou for […]

“AOC” Name to be Eliminated; Judicial Council Accepts Direct Responsibility for Audit Outcome

July 1, 2014


From the Alliance of California Judges….   In a bizarre move, Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye opened Friday’s meeting of the Judicial Council by announcing her intention to “retire, remove, take away, eliminate the name ‘Administrative Office of the Courts.’” Friday’s published meeting agenda contained no reference whatsoever to the planned action. The Chief Justice directed […]

Basking In The Glow Of Yet Another Trainwreck…..

June 11, 2014


This is the contents of an email from the Alliance of California Judges to their members. The first paragraph demonstrates how the AOC misses the mark by about a thousand miles. After all, the AOC burned taxpayer money to stock up on iPads and passed out swag bags with electronic tablets in them to legislators, […]

Myth vs. Fact – Making the Case for an AOC Audit

February 19, 2014


Last week, the Chief Justice told an audience in Riverside, “There is a presumption, somehow, in the capitol in Sacramento that the judicial branch is where it is now, with courtrooms closed and less services . . . because somehow, somehow, we mismanaged ourselves into the situation. . . . I have to remind them, […]

Retreads and Denial – A Strange Way To Restore Credibility

February 3, 2014


In the aftermath of the CCMS debacle — a $500 million waste of taxpayer money that ranks among the costliest IT failures in American history — how should the judicial branch go about restoring its credibility with the Legislature and the Governor? One way would be to acknowledge the CCMS failure immediately; hold accountable those […]

The Chief’s Three Year Blueprint is Dead On Arrival

January 16, 2014


The Chief Justice recently released the AOC’s three year blueprint for California’s judicial branch. I say it is the AOC’s three year blueprint because the chief herself credits the AOC for all of the hard work they did in coming up with this plan. Incredibly short on specifics, the three year blueprint outlines the desire […]

An apology to Judicial Watch on Teflon Jack’s behalf…

July 30, 2013


In what hope will be the last chapter in a long-running saga up in Shasta County, Diane Eisenberg of the Attorney Generals’ office penned an opinion (link) in the Quo Warranto action of one Charles Wagner representing the people of the state of California vs. Judge Jack Halpin. If anything is perfectly clear about this opinion, […]

AOC Contractors are being flipped to FTE?

December 7, 2012


Whispered into our private message window and combined with other information gleaned from within the AOC, it appears that the contractor heavy IT department has been instructed to reduce their use of contractors…….. wait for it………… by hiring them. In particular, they want to make FTE’s out of the people supporting CCMS that haven’t already […]

The OCCM Train Wreck

August 23, 2012


You heard it here first even though Mr. Jones was officially, unofficially leaked the summary of the Pegasus Global Holding report. Of course, when you and I see the whole report in all of its gory detail, someone is going to wonder why we’re giving these stooges 6.5 billion dollars to shut our justice system […]

Let’s talk fact check again….

August 9, 2012


From our friends at “Fact Check” over at the AOC- The AOC’s fact check is something we could spend the next hundred posts picking apart. We’re not going to waste our time doing that because it is all fiction. There is hardly any facts in fact check other than those twisted with another version of […]
