    (JCW is responsible for retitling this press release)(JCW also feels that this is a great reason to surrender your CJA membership and join the ACJ and no, we’re not judges or affiliated with the ACJ in any manner) October 25, 2016 Last May, the California Judges Association crowed that it had been given “a seat […]
