  • Does the rules committee follow the rules? 2014/07/23
      Last Thursday, the Judicial Council’s Rules and Projects Committee (RUPRO) met to take up the issue of the renaming of the Administrative Office of the Courts, as requested by the Chief Justice.  The RUPRO meeting, conducted telephonically, was slated to run an hour.  It lasted only 15 minutes. As expected, the committee voted unanimously […]

  • Will the real judicial council board of directors please stand up? 2014/07/16
    “This retirement at once changes everything, and changes nothing.” Administrative Director of the AOC Steven Jahr   Doublespeak. We’re accustomed to hearing it from national leadership but from the ostensible leadership of a whole branch of state government, especially the judicial branch is …. uncommon. What bothers us the most about this statement is that […]

  • “AOC” Name to be Eliminated; Judicial Council Accepts Direct Responsibility for Audit Outcome 2014/07/01
    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 Chi […]

  • The Judicial Council’s Extreme Makeover 2014/06/28
    For those of you who work for or have ever worked for the AOC as well as many of you in the courts, a move made this week to change the name of the administrative office of the courts is laughable and serves only to feverishly repaint the titanic just before it dips below the […]

  • When the court falsifies the record it undermines the integrity of the judicial system 2014/06/20
    Nobody is above the law. Well, except sometimes, when you’re a California judge. We generally make it a point to shy away legal cases and focus on what is wrong with the judicial branch. Mostly what is wrong with the judicial branch can be found in San Francisco. However……sometimes we see a series of incidents […]
