Please read this message from judicial reformer, Dr. Richard Fine:
Please pull out all stops. Please spread the word everywhere. Please post this on all websites and Facebook pages with the request that e mails be sent to each LA County Supervisor. We need thousands of e mails to each of the LA County Supervisors to make this work.
The following is the e mail that I sent to each of the LA County Supervisors. You and those with whom you share may use all or part of it in your and their e mails to the LA County Supervisors. The e mail addresses in my e mail to the Supervisors are valid.
Thank you for your efforts. Remember: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead
Regards,
Richard

End Illegal "Supplemental Judicial Benefits" to LA Superior Court Judges with the 2015-2016 Budget
Dear Supervisors:
This is the year to end the approximate $400 million in illegal payments that have been made to LA County Superior Court judges through the annual budget since the mid 1980s.
This year the illegal payments will be approximately $25 million to approximately 430 LA Superior Court judges in addition to their state salary of $184,000 plus state benefits and retirement. With these LA County illegal payments, the LA County Superior Court judges receive more money per year than associate justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.
These payments were held to be “compensation” and to violate California Constitution Article 6, Section 19 in the decision of Sturgeon v. County of Los Angeles, 167 Cal.App.4th 630 (2008) Review Denied 12/23/2008.
The LA County Supervisors also receive a raise in pay from these illegal payments as the Supervisors' pay is keyed to the compensation of the superior court judges under the LA County Charter. At present that extra compensation for the judges and the Supervisors appears to be over $57,000 per year for each LA Superior Court judge and LA County Supervisor.
The judges and the Supervisors received retroactive immunity from criminal prosecution, civil liability and disciplinary action under SBX 2 11, Section 5. SBX 2 11 was enacted in 2009 as emergency legislation at the urging of the judges in response to the Sturgeon decision. However, this immunity does not exist today and has not existed since 5/20/2009. The criminal acts encompassed by the retroactive immunity included obstruction of justice, conspiracy to obstruct justice and bribery amongst others.
This year you can eliminate the illegal payments, end the judicial corruption caused by the illegal payments and restore integrity to the LA Superior Court.
You do this by removing the “supplemental judicial benefits” from the 2015-2016 Budget and save approximately $25 million in the 2015-2016 Budget. Or, you can continue the illegal payments and continue to engage in conduct: (1) violating both the California and federal criminal statutes; (2) violating your oath of office to uphold the U.S. and California Constitutions and laws; and (3) violating the trust of your constituents.
The choice is yours; choose wisely!
