One of the coolest lines ever to be written in a court document may have just been filed in California:
California could no more immunize divorce tribunals from civil rights abuse than it could deputize a priest to perform an exorcism.
Citizens don’t usually stop and think that once they elect a judge to office, that judge can claim immunity for just about anything. And if the case above filed by The California Coalition for Families and Children is any indication, people are seriously questioning whether or not judges should have that immunity in the first place.
Good. A democracy needs to question authority.
As for Judge Rosenthal, well … she used to be a federal prosecutor before she got appointed to be a judge. You might be interested in knowing who appointed her around election time.
How about an app for that?
If you comment with links to apps that do that already I’ll be happy to spread the word.
