CJE and a few of our supporters at the February 2015 Judicial Council meeting in Sacramento.

Join Us Next Friday At The Judicial Council In SF!

As part of our ongoing 2015 Year of Action, CJE will return to the Judicial Council next Friday, April 17th in San Francisco. CJE and our allies need your help once again to ensure another powerful presence. Whether you’ve been with us recently or this is your first time, we encourage everyone who can possibly make it to please join us on Friday, April 17th in San Francisco to help grow our movement and deliver our court reform message. 

The public comment period will take place on Friday, April 17th from 9:45-10:15 a.m. You can view the agenda for Friday's meeting by clicking here. 

The Judicial Council continues to change their format for public comment, so we do not know how many people will get to testify, but you will be allowed 1-3 minutes to speak. If you want to attend but do not want to speak, bring a friend, relative or neighbor, and help show our strength in numbers by sitting quietly in the meeting wearing a red Stop Court Crimes T ShirtPlease email CJE to let us know that you are coming so that we can keep in touch! 

What: Judicial Council of California Meeting
When: Friday, April 17, 2015
Where: 455 Golden Gate Avenue • San Francisco, California 94102

Who: Anyone concerned about or affected by the failures of the California court system. If you have already testified, then please join us again, but we ask that you consider submitting written comments and allowing others to speak during our limited public comment session. So many people have been harmed by the broken California courts, and the Judicial Council needs to hear from as broad of a group as possible. Thanks for your cooperation. We will videotape all testimony once again, as we did last time.


  1. If you did not speak at the last meetings and would like to address the Judicial Council next Thursday, then please send a brief email to stating your name (first and last), and the topic you would like to speak about (Judicial Accountability) in your email. 
  2. For those who spoke at one of the last meetings, we ask you to please join us again in your red t-shirt and submit written comments for this meeting. Comments should be submitted to
  3. Anyone who cares about judicial integrity and the crisis in our state's courts is welcome to join us in the gallery in a show of support for the many people being harmed by our broken court system. You do not need to be a victim of a corrupt court proceeding in order to attend. Just bring $15 for a CJE membership and we will give you a red t-shirt that you can wear to show your support for our growing movement. It is going to take a statewide movement to expose what is going wrong in our courts, and we thank each and every one of you who is willing to participate.
