Alliance of California Judges, California Supreme Court, David Lampe, Tani Cantil-Sakauye

Superior Court Judges Tia Fisher of Los Angeles, Steve White of Sacramento, and Kent Hamlin of Fresno have been elected next year’s officers of the Alliance of California Judges

Superior Court Judges Tia Fisher of Los Angeles, Steve White of Sacramento, and Kent Hamlin of Fresno have been elected next year’s officers of the Alliance of California Judges.

White will take over as president, Fisher as secretary, and Hamlin as treasurer, the group’s directors said in a letter sent to members and others on Monday. The directors said the outgoing president, Kern Superior Court Judge David Lampe, will continue to serve as an “executive” director to oversee the development of the organization and coordinate its activities.  Source @:http://www.metnews.com/articles/2012/alli121912.htm

A “trailer bill” to the 2012-13 state budget incorporated many provisions of legislation that the breakaway Alliance of California Judges had sought over the opposition of Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye in a quest for more local control of court funds.

However, with the Brown administration apparently seeking further cuts in state support of the courts, the alliance has elected one of its most combative members, Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White, as its president.

It also declared in a letter to its members this week that it will independently lobby the Legislature on budget and other matters, saying that management by Judicial Council and the Administrative Office of the Courts, both of which are controlled by Cantil-Sakauye, “clearly has been a failure.” Source@: http://blogs.sacbee.com/capitolalertlatest/2012/12/rebel-judges-will-continue…%20and%20California

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]

  • Is the CJA suddenly an unauthorized collective bargaining unit? 2016/10/27
    (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 […]
