A nine-minute news video features two public interest attorneys whose long legal battles against California court corruption have finally reached the highest courts in the land, disclosing their prospects for victory in their two separate cases. Watch here: http://www.fulldisclosure.net/Blogs/86.php


Both cases involve illegal payments made by the County of Los Angeles to State Judges which in court documents have been referred to as "bribes" and address the little known 2009 State legislation (Senate Bill SBX 211) that attempted to make the payments over the past twenty-three years retroactively "legal" along with criminal immunity from prosecution. On May 20, 2010, the U S Supreme Court, will have before them the issue of illegal payments being used as "bribes" when they consider whether or not to grant a Petition for Writ of Certiorari submitted by Richard I. Fine. (Richard I. Fine vs LA County Sheriff Leroy Baca Case No. 10-cv-0048)


The case of (Sturgeon vs County of Los Angeles) will be heard in the California Court of Appeal (4th District). On May 21, 2010 the court is expected to set a date for oral argument in the case when attorney Sterling Norris of the public interest legal organization Judicial Watch will seek injunctive relief to stop LA County payments to the State Judges as the same Court of Appeals (D050832) had previously held, in November 2008, the payments were illegal.


70 year old Richard I. Fine has been held in solitary "coercive confinement" in L. A. County Jail for civil contempt of court following his attempt to disqualify State Superior Court Judge David Yaffe for accepting approximately $350,000 in illegal payments from L. A. County, a party to the case before him. Fine has been held for fourteen months, without being charged or convicted of a crime his appeals for release have been rejected by California State and Federal judges.
