Petition 2 Congress REPEAL SBX211 AND GIVE THE COURTS BACK TO THE PEOPLE


Ballotpedia SBX211 allows judges to accept bribes
SBX2 11 is a California Senate Bill passed in 2009. The bill was signed into law by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on February 20, 2009. The bill reinstated certain supplemental benefits for judges and gave them retroactive immunity for accepting compensation from the county of Los Angeles, which the Constitution clearly states shall be set by the legislature. A story about the bill, and a link to it, can be found at Full Disclosure Network.

Ronald M. George is the chairman of the Judicial Council of California, which wrote SBX2 11.

An organization known as Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against the county. In October 2008, a California appellate court decision, Sturgeon v. County of Los Angeles declared the payments by the county to the judges were unconstitutional, thus reversing the decision made by a Superior Court of Los Angeles.

In March 2009, attorney Dr. Richard I. Fine, was jailed in retaliation for exposing the corruption, now involving all branches of California government. More information can be found in the story by Full Disclosure Network. From his jail cell, Fine filed various motions and petitions, including a certiorari petition in the Supreme Court of the United States. The question before the court was whether or not Judge David P. Yaffe should have ruled in a case which Fine represented plaintiffs in, against the county of Los Angeles, which has been paying Judge David P. Yaffe and other judges the supplemental benefits for years. According to the U.S. Supreme Court docket information on Attorney Dr. Richard I. Fine’s petition, the justices were set to discuss the case on September 29, 2009 and denied the petition on October 5, 2009.

Ron Branson encountered the same type of bias by judges in 1982 while helping a friend with a case against the county. He wrote the Judicial Accountability Initiative Law in 1995 after he brought a lawsuit in 1994 against the county and seven police officers for false arrest, false imprisonment and unwarranted strip-search, as well as other charges; and when the City of Los Angeles defaulted, no judgment came, although the Constitution mandates one be rendered within ninety days of default. Branson’s biography, as well as the amendment to a state or federal Constitution, known as J.A.I.L. (Judicial Accountability Initiative Law), can be found at: JAIL 4 Judges.
